Greening the Holidays
December 6, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Green Newton Student Group presents ‘Greening the Holidays’
Sunday, December 6 from 4-5pm
Newton student leaders invite you to join our virtual public meeting (for all ages) on how we can make plans to celebrate a more sustainable holiday season. The program will include great gift ideas, trivia questions and easy steps to make an environmental difference.
Please register in advance HERE.
Presentation topics include:
Food & Waste: How does food and waste play into the culture of a holiday? How can we make more sustainable choices while maintaining tradition?
Fashion: What is fast fashion? How can we consciously avoid supporting it during the holidays?
Transportation: During a ‘normal’ holiday season, how can we realistically prioritize conscious transportation choices?
Gift Giving:What makes a gift special? What are some meaningful, environmentally conscious gift ideas?
Advocacy: Why is advocacy important to prioritize during the holidays?
Taking Action!: How energy efficiency steps can be considered a gift?
The 4C Tree Project: What is the ‘Capture Carbon Commemorate COVID-19’ project all about? How can one incorporate volunteering experience into a gift?
