Reduce Reuse Recycle this Christmas with Linky

Welcome to my weekend blog hop -
Make My Saturday Sweet #200!

Christmas is an especially good time to remember the three R's, because there is so much waste during the season. We can reduce, by buying less and more thoughtfully. We can reuse by re-gifting or saving bags, ribbons, and cards to use again. We can recycle by sorting our trash and disposing of it appropriately.

Here is an excellent resource:

Our family does recycling faithfully throughout the year. Our trash is mostly paper, plastic, tins, and glass, so it makes a lot of sense to recycle. In the USA, from Thanksgiving to Christmas, household waste increases by 25%.

I like to save Christmas bags, ribbons, and cards. They are always needed at Christmas time and often look good from one year to the next. The Christmas bags usually only need a new gift tag. The ribbons are used to decorate gifts, of course, or cards. The old cards get cut up and glued on new blank cards with a white page glued inside. This is where I can get a little creative and if the kids get involved they can have some fun too. Below are three that I did this December.
