Ever wonder what a truly environmentally-conscious Christmas would look like? Wonder no more:
"No tree. No driving to the tree lot, watching them saw the tree down, wrapping it in plastic and then driving back home. No driving to Target, buying a plastic tree and driving home. We make a tree mural out of shopping bags and leave a few Sharpies around to decorate with. It's personal, meaningful and 100 percent recycled."
This from the Alternative Consumer magazine. They have more Christmas "rules," including, "No holiday hams. French toast can replace tired turkey and ham dinners."
Peace and goodwill to you, too, Christmas nazis.
You can read more about the Alternative Consumer's vision of a merry-less Christmas at Ralph Reiland's Pittsburgh Tribune blog. Plenty other goodies in his post about Christmas for those on the "green" side of life. These people make the Grinch look like Santa Claus.
