Happy Holiday Season from all of us at HomeLife/Realty One

This Holiday Season will be a time for joy & happiness where cultural celebrations and traditions abound; singing Christmas Carols, lighting candles for Kwanzaa, making potato latkes, honoring mother nature…  Whichever traditions you, your family and friends adhere to, there is a very good chance that your celebration will involve festive decorations, accessories, candles, & lights.  Without sacrificing any of the joy of the season, a few small changes can reduce the impact on our environment.
Consider newspapers’ colour comics, recycle wrapping paper or use reusable gift boxes and bags.
Allow time to make your own decorations or buy some that can be reused.  Our family decided long ago that our tree trimming would be done with homemade cookies, gingerbread and popcorn – yum!
Go on a scavenger hunt with your family members for natural decorations like pine cones, Dogwood branches or birch bark.
Save energy and money by turning the thermostat down a little when you’re baking those yummy treats, in your favorite Holiday sweater.
Recycle your glass bottles & tins. Most can be reused and decorated to offer homemade baking or drinks, we upcycle our glass bottles and give the gift of rum punch to our closest friends.
Cheers and happy Holidays from all of us at
HomeLife/Realty One, 501 Parliament Street 416.922.5533
