A Green Holiday Season

By Rev. Carol Bodeau

Happy Holiday Season!

As we enter into the season of so many holiday traditions, we at Westside have been thinking a lot about how to be ‘greener’ and more sustainable in our practices (both in our own personal lives, and as a community). In our Sunday service this last weekend, we talked about a number of ideas for making your holidays more earth friendly. So here’s a list of resources you might consider as you head into the holidays. And explore around on the internet—there’s a lot more out there to help us make the holidays more green and healthy for the whole web of life.
