  • Eco Club would like to recognize the following “How to have a green holiday” ideas:

“K” from RM 25.: Instead of giving an object, you can make a donation in someone’s name such  as WWF or Greenpeace. – Great Idea!

“W” from RM 14: You wrap gifts in cloth or fabric that you already have. If you use ribbon it could be used for your hair after. – Such a nice idea!

“K” in RM 24: Use energy and electricity wisely such as cooking a big batch of food in the oven. – Thanks!

You will all receive a hot chocolate for your great ideas!

From, The Eco Team

Please email Shane via thegledhillguardian@gmail.com if you can help. Upcoming movie nights are tomorrow, Dec 14th, Feb 22nd and April 26th.
