Ms GQF's Made in the USA Green Tree Skirt

Ms GQF's Made in the USA Green Tree Skirt

This year’s holiday season brought so many opportunities for Green Quick Fixes, from the 100% recycled content wrapping paper to beeswax menorah candles.

One of my favorite things about the holidays is the opportunity to bring nature inside and enjoy the heady Evergreen aroma of a fresh tree. This year it was easy to find, cut, and decorate a locally- and sustainably-grown, pesticide-free tree. This one here, grown at Evergreen Farm in nearby Georgetown/Byfield, is decorated with multi-color LED lights, reusable silver garland instead of tinsel, and a tree skirt made from reused coffee bean bags and recycled sweater. It, along with the great matching stockings, were handmade for me in Minnesota by thelittlegreenbean. Thank you Missy!

Friday brings great gift giving tips, like 10 eco-friendly stocking stuffers for <$10 and easy-to-find local green hostess gifts!
