“Welcome to Thurston County’s WasteFree Holidays Web site!
Did you know that Americans throw away 25 percent more trash between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day? The added food waste, shopping bags, packaging, wrapping paper, bows and ribbons add up to an additional 1 million tons of waste each week. Thats a lot of garbage!
This year, consider doing something a little different — give the gift of experience. Treat someone you know to a dinner out or a live theater performance. If you still want a gift to hand to someone, make it yourself. Coupons for babysitting, yard work, or other services show you care enough to give of your time, not just your money. Bake a tasty treat. Consider wrapping gifts inside re-useable containers such as cookie tins, flower pots or baskets.”
