Who doesn’t love the holiday season? Friends and family gathered to spend time with each other, cozy movie nights complete with hot cocoa, and giving gifts to one another. It is such a busy and exciting time of the year that we often forget to take into account the effects of our activities. I know that during December, I’m mostly focused on completing my Christmas gift list for what I’m getting my family and friends. I hardly even think about the effects of what the holiday activities are causing the environment.
