Book Review: Green Christmas: How to Have a Joyous, Eco-Friendly Holiday Season (Adams Media, 2008) by Jennifer Bayse Sander and Peter Sander with Anne Basye

Considering that many Americans have been or are about to be laid off this holiday season with no relief in sight, parents are wondering about what they can still afford to do for their children this year. Think back to when you were a kid. Do you really remember all the different toys you received each year? My fondest memory is of my dad taking us sledding down a neighbor's hill. These kind of memories are what your children will recall too.

Green Christmas focuses on how we can have a green Christmas by giving more (of ourselves), and consuming less (of what's wasteful).

"The cost of conforming in the United States is great. Every year between Thanksgiving and New Years Day, Americans generate 25 million extra tons of garbage (about 25% more than during the rest of the year) and spend billions of dollars on purchases that may trigger an uptick on Wall Street but leave consumers burdened with more debt."

A Green Christmas is not just environment-friendly, but is completely suitable in times of economic need.

Green Christmas calls for:

Family involvement--include children, who are probably already aware of global warming and environmental issues; volunteer your time; visit national parks; go on an eco-tourism trip; focus on your time together rather than the gifts received.

Entertaining without waste--consider a local foods Christmas party or an organic wine tasting; invite and get to know your neighbors.

Format: Paperback
It is no secret that the holidays are stressful. Buying gifts, traveling, cooking, decorating, chilly weather, the flu - it's enough to drive a person bonkers. Trying to maintain a sustainable mindset during such busy times adds its own unique challenge.

Can you have a sane, eco-holiday? Of course! Authors Jennifer Basye Sander, Peter Sander, and Anne Basye had the foresight to write Green Christmas: How to Have a Joyous, Eco-Friendly Holiday Season for this exact purpose. Any questions you have about holiday entertaining, travel, gifts, decorating, and waste are answered in intelligent, easy-to-understand detail.

Green Christmas offers some very sobering details about our holidays' impact on the environment:

* Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, Americans produce an extra 2 billion pounds of garbage per week. (Imaging that on a world-wide scale!)
* Every Christmas season, enough holiday cards are sold to fill a 10-story football stadium.
* If every child under the age of 6 received a quality wood toy instead of a plastic one, we'd avoid 17 million tons of plastic landfill.

Getting the whole family involved and focusing on what particularly about the holidays makes you happy (I bet it isn't spending hours trapped in shopping mall crowds.) are key to enjoy a sustainable holiday. By simply consuming less and enjoying the company of others more, you will be on your way to the greenest holiday season ever.

According to Green Christmas, enjoying the holidays sustainably doesn't mean you will be sacrificing any joy or merriment. In fact, 75-90% of people report that they feel stressed and depressed during the holidays.

This was a great little book; lots of ideas, not all new, but fresh in light of today's world, without being preachy.
