5 Tips for Saving Energy During the Holidays

1. Shop online.

You will save time and gas.

2. Donate to a cause.

You can make a donation to environmental projects. For ideas, contact Grand Valley Peace and Juctice at 243-0209.

3. Buy rechargeable batteries.

Rechargeable batteries save money, and prevent toxic chemicals from harming the environment.

4. Buy recyled holiday cards and gift wrap.

If you don't keep your cards recyle them. Metallic and plastic gift paper take longer to decompose, so buy paper gift wrap.

5. Buy LED lights and put them on a timer.

LED lights last longer and use less energy. The timer also saves electricity. For more holidy green tips log on to
