green christmas advent calendar
e-card, paperless post

Christmas time is a wonderful opportunity to find creative eco friendly solutions as a family. Real Mom Daily has created a family friendly countdown to a greener Christmas to share with your kids!

advent date, December 7th

Choose E-cards! According to a publication published through Stanford University on holiday waste prevention, “The 2.65 billion Christmas cards sold each year in the U.S. could fill a football field 10 stories high. If we each sent one card less, we’d save 50,000 cubic yards of paper.” Ack!

There are many sites that have beautiful designs for holiday e-cards that can be sent to everyone on your email list without the paper waste and postal cost.  I’m always at a loss as to what to do with them all after the season is over. This way your friends and family can upload your family pictures and save them the eco-friendly way. Check out paperlesspost.com to create and send your e-card this year!
