Recycle Those Lights!
This is a purely practical post people. Well... it's taken a couple of weeks, but our Christmas tree is *almost* done. I don't know about you, but for us, the Christmas decorating process is never a one day deal. I wish! It generally takes at least a week for the boxes to come down, the decorations to go up, the clutter to be put away and for the boxes to return back out of sight.
This year, I found several strings of lights that didn't work. They've been sitting in a big bin, right next to our tree. I haven't wanted to just throw them in the garbage, so I did a little bit of googling today and found an answer!
Did you know that Whole Foods actually recycles broken Christmas lights? YES! I called my local Whole Foods and yup, they've been doing it for several years and just set up a bin for collecting lights.
WOOHOO! I'm bringing my lights down asap!
OK... Happy Decorating (and Recycling) Everyone! :)
