Sliding into the Weekend!

How was your week? Our family celebrated the first night of Hanukkah and this weekend we have plans to light some candles with our neighbors (from a distance). I’m also making some lactation cookies for a different neighbor with a new baby, and we will wave hello to a friend who’s having a birthday. Ah, life in 2020… Yet climate change is still on the horizon and we must remain vigilant. Let’s see what we can focus on this week

I learned about organization while listening to NHPR this morning. Like to ski? Sounds like the place for you. “We help passionate outdoor people protect the places and lifestyles they love from climate change.”

How are you wrapping your gifts this holiday season? We’re not perfect about reusable wrapping but it’s my goal to use no disposable paper next year. It’s Officially Time To Ban Gift-Wrapping Paper

Recycling continues to cause debate. It’s better than sending items to landfill, but it can be expensive and not always effective. One answer? — make big brands pay. Consumer-product makers are under pressure to pitch in as customers and lawmakers pay more attention to plastic waste

And a happy Hanukkah to all those who celebrate! A cute video from our new Second Family. It breaks so many barriers and warms my heart!

Lastly, here’s a recap of other topics Hannah and I discussed this week on GreenLifeNH!

  1. I agree, tt is probably time to stop using wrapping paper. My kids already know what most of their gifts are and there are many alternatives. I love the site. Thank you!
