Don’t forget to give the gift of sustainability

Though it’s not a traditional part of the religious experience of Chanukah to give gifts, many of us add gifts to our Chanukah traditions. However, according to a study done by the City of Boulder, one of the top contributors to our communities’ carbon footprint is the amount of stuff that we buy and consume. Try changing up the way you gift using these tips.
