I love the holiday seasons because I can really spend some quality time with friends and family. And when all the cousins and relatives get together for a night or two, it kind of makes me nostalgic and reminds me of how we used to camp out in the backyard all night long in the summers. Of course, with the mercury dipping so low that is not really a possibility.
One thing that seems to always be on in your home is the lights, no matter the room. As humans we naturally feel more comfortable in the warm glow of light, but as humans we also forget to turn off the lights in rooms we are in.

America Recycles day is November 15th and you can make a small contribution by opting for eco-friendly products.
I hate the wastage that occurs during the holiday season. For starters, think about all that electricity consumed when people leave their garden and patio or even indoor decorative lights on all night long. And don’t even make me talk about the electricity bills that follow suits. So, you are adding to environmental waste and also increasing your utility bills.
You’re an energy conscious person. You think about how your carbon-foot print will affect this planet long after you’re gone. You recycle, you compost, and you shop local. But did you think about your major appliances, what about their energy impact? When you shop for your major appliances you want to make sure that you’re getting your money’s worth on the product and that includes how much energy they use.
