DKI has compiled a list of tips to help you enjoy a "greener" holiday — for both the environment and your wallet, the release note.
According to the release, some of these tips include making your own wrapping paper with recyclable newspaper or other reusable cloth items such as blankets, pillow cases, towels and scarves and recycling your Christmas tree.
