Green Living by Janet Marchant: Greening Your Boxing Day…and Beyond!


Now that the winter holidays are drawing to a close, you might be thinking about taking down your Christmas light display over the weekend. But wait! If you are using those extra-efficient L.E.D. style lights that I told you about last week, the longer you leave them lit, the more energy you save! If you really want to show how much you care about our planet, you'll want to recycle those lights by re-purposing them for Boxing Day, perhaps by adding a few strings of Rocky Red or Raging Bull Blue. In fact, you may just want to make that festive addition to your home permanent, for year-round energy savings. And think what a difference that will make to your wallet…not to mention the planet!
