Tim Hammond over at the Register wrote recently about how Christmas has become a fairly, well, anti-environmental holiday.

When did Christmas become about lights and presents? Christmas is about the celebration of the birth of Christ. And wouldn’t the celebration of the birth of Christ be best celebrated by helping others, as Christ did. Buying gifts made in China that have to be shipped here worsening global warming is not helping others. Buying electronics that will eventually contaminate our water with their heavy metals is not helping others. Buying decorations and other junk and throwing away all that stuff in the near future along with it’s packaging is not helping others.

I, for one, could not agree more. Consider the impact that your gift-giving choices have on the planet. Consider your home decorating choices. Consider how you package your packages.

We’ll have more on this topic during the next months.
