Green Your Holidays: Lights

LED Christmas lights Whether you're celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or all of them, this week's tips will help you lessen your impact while you increase your joy.

Tip #1: Be Bright About Lighting

By switching to LED lights, you'll save power even while keeping the holiday spirit bright — some LED strands are even solar-powered. Instead of going overboard with a power-sucking display, get maximum impact from fewer lights by choosing a smaller tree or focusing on one central part of the house, like the front door. Just as you would with any appliance, remember to unplug lights when they're not in use.

Tip #2: Fake Tree? Get Real.

Tip #3: Choose Greener Candles

Tip #4: Save (Wrapping) Paper
