What Would Santa's Carbon Footprint Be?

According to this infographic, Santa may be jolly but he is certainly not green. 

Ethical Ocean took a look at Santa’s environmental impact, and tried to see if they could help him run a slightly more eco-friendly operation.

The Ugly Christmas Sweater A Pretty Fun Recycle Idea

So many ways to recycle and make an UGLY Christmas SWEATER

It seems all the rage, the ugly Christmas sweater, but it's really a great lesson on recycling! An old sweater (tshirt, vest or sweatshirt), some decorations, baubles and beads magically transform to a holiday fashion statement. Not crafty? Then scout out one that's ready made. Find a vintage Christmas sweater, once fashionbable, now refashion able. 

This year my friends had an ugly sweater party, as did thousands of kitchy friends across the country.  A time to spread some holiday cheer, pointing and  laughter. Whether you look like santa, an elf or your 1980's mother; the holiday sweater party is here to stay.

So, roll up those sleeves and join us in celebrating a few ugly sweater parties. Then get out a pen and start scribbling invitations to your own party next year

When you finish with your pretty ugly holiday sweater make sure you recycle it, donate it to a thrift or consignment for someone else to find and wear another year!
