In this exclusive report, I chat with two top green living experts for their zero-waste holiday tips: Gina Murphy-Darling (a.k.a. Mrs. Green), owner of Mrs. Green's World, and Corey Colwell Lipson, co-author of Celebrate Green and director of the non-profit Green Halloween. Plus, I provide a tantalizing glimpse into our nation's past to learn how American colonists in 18th-century Colonial Williamsburg traditionally celebrated the holidays—without generating tons of toxic landfill garbage.

Why Zero-Waste? 

"Americans throw away tons of garbage the week after Christmas, including wrapping paper and packaging," comments Mrs. Green. "Last year, we found colorful reusable gift bags which look so pretty under the tree. Even with eight people, we had less than one small bag of trash. Reuse Christmas packaging and decorations every year—just don't just mindlessly throw everything in the trash." 

"One of the stereotypes is that green is ugly. But green can be beautiful at Christmas. It's an old-fashioned message that people delight in," she adds.
