Greening the Holidays

December 6, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Green Newton Student Group presents ‘Greening the Holidays’

Sunday, December 6 from 4-5pm

Newton student leaders invite you to join our virtual public meeting (for all ages) on how we can make plans to celebrate a more sustainable holiday season. The program will include great gift ideas, trivia questions and easy steps to make an environmental difference.

Please register in advance HERE.

Presentation topics include:

Food & Waste: How does food and waste play into the culture of a holiday? How can we make more sustainable choices while maintaining tradition?

Fashion: What is fast fashion? How can we consciously avoid supporting it during the holidays?

Transportation: During a ‘normal’ holiday season, how can we realistically prioritize conscious transportation choices?

Gift Giving:What makes a gift special? What are some  meaningful, environmentally conscious gift ideas?

Advocacy: Why is advocacy important to prioritize during the holidays?

Taking Action!: How energy efficiency steps can be considered a gift?

The 4C Tree Project: What is the ‘Capture Carbon Commemorate COVID-19’ project all about? How can one incorporate volunteering experience into a gift?

With gratitude to Esther Zhang (NNHS ’22) for designing the graphic for this Green Newton event!
