Today's Green Piece:
Are Christmas trees environmentally-detrimental? Every December we engage in the pagan ritual of chopping down pine trees, thus contributing to the breakdown of the ozone layer. Christmas is generally a time of indulgence and over consumption and I am sure it takes its toll on the environment when people are eating so many mince pies and slaughtering turkeys.
My Green dress, the one with the beads in the shapes of leaves, is my save the trees statement, my pledge to Greenpeace contradictory that I’m arriving in a Hummer, which eats fuel and contributes significantly to the hole in the ozone layer.
