6.) Green Tip: Put more green in your holidays

The holidays can be hard on your wallet and our planet. Save money, resources and the environment this season with a few simple steps. Don’t make your office or lab work when you leave for the holidays. Turn down thermostats, power down computers and unplug chargers, printers and equipment. Serve local, seasonal foods and consider low-impact, non-material gifts like memberships, tickets to local performing arts, CSA subscriptions or skill-building classes like UofL’s Lifelong Learning offerings.

Additional Information: Visit here for more “green” holiday tips.
