Note from the editor of Green Energy Times:
This is great! I love the things that Sustainable does with recycling… I would like to add how nicely newspaper wrapped gifts look, possibly with yarn, twine or even more newspaper that is cut into strips for ribbon and bows. you can even curl the newspaper strips with the edge of your scissors! I love this… comics look best – for color. Very classy looking gifts!* Some newspapers use water-based inks, which are better, for sure… and recycled content paper… but save your Green Energy Times, for referral and sharing!
“HAPPY XMAS*” to you ALL!
*(“Happy Christmas” is in memory of john lennon, needlessly murdered at this time of year – dec. 8th)
May the New Year bring positive strides towards a carbon free, clean energy independent future for ourselves and our children!
