1 - Buy organic, locally-produced food as far as possible.

3 - If you wish to choose paper cards, buy them from recycled paper.

4 - Use wrapping paper made from recycled material. And when you unwrap your gifts do it carefully so you can reuse them.

5 - When you wrap your gifts, use tape or rope so that the paper can be opened without damaging it.

6 - As far as possible, choose to buy gift certificated with green labels, fair trade items, etc.

7 - Organize a Christmas gathering for the needy at you office, or persuade your boss to make a donation.

8 - Considers planting your tree in a pot, so you can transplant it after Christmas.

9 - Purchase goods, toys and lasting gifts. And do not forget to donate toys no longer used for a local charity!
