Holidays Bring Extra Baggage

Holidays Bring Extra Baggage

Food, gifts, fun and family: these are the things the holidays are known for.

But the resulting waste leaves its mark on the environment. Between Thanksgiving and New Years, the average American household increases its trash output by 25 percent – that’s 5 million extra tons of garbage nationally, according to estimates.

Take the Green Team’s Sustainability Pledge and cut your waste this season and beyond.
