According to the EPA, waste jumps an astounding 25 percent between Thanksgiving and the New Year.  For businesses and individuals demonstrating green values, the trick to a successful holiday season is the ability to enjoy the holidays while also minimizing waste.
 
Promoting sustainability involves discovering eco friendly alternatives to traditional behaviors. As businesses and individuals unite with co workers and family during the holiday season, promoting eco awareness couldn't be easier than offering organic and local cuisine on Preserve Kitchen and tableware. In fact, our friends at Dolphin Blue proudly provide Preserve Kitchen and Tableware for your green office and home. 
 
Here's why it's important: Each Preserve item is made with pride in the USA, and contains 100% post-consumer recycled #5 plastic. In addition, every Preserve product is Melamine and BPA free, as well as dishwasher safe.  
 
Serving organic food and spirits support sustainable farming practices.  The benefits of serving what you need, reduces waste. The importance of using reusable serving wear can't be underestimated.   Waste is not just created when consumers throw items away. Waste is generated throughout the life cycle of a product, from extraction of raw materials, to transportation to processing and manufacturing facilities, to manufacture and use. Reusing items or making them with less material decrease waste dramatically. Ultimately, less material will need to be recycled or sent to landfills or waste-combustion facilities.
 
By thinking of ways to reduce waste when you shop, work and play this holiday season, it raises the level of eco awareness in your day. It's easy to integrate green into daily life but to do so require having access to clear knowledge of how and why an eco action is good for the environment. A trusted source is Dolphin Blue's The Wave Maker: a free, eco friendly newsletter. It illustrates the ease of living green with helpful ideas to help live green at home and at work.   An extra bonus is that Dolphin Blue is an official Certified B Corporation and an online retailer of environmentally responsible office supplies.  Not only does Dolphin Blue lead in the sustainability space by providing tangible, every day sustainable products, but also offers eco friendly information green your business and your daily life with day to day eco actions. 
 
How can we be good to the environment during the holidays? Educate ourselves on the environmentally friendly actions we can take. And, live our green values.   Theme your holidays green and discover how many traditional products can be replaced by eco friendly products by visiting our friends at Dolphin Blue.
