The Holiday Season can lend itself to overspending and creating too much waste. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that:
- Americans throw away about 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve.
- If every American family wrapped just 3 presents in reused materials, it would save enough paper to cover 45,000 football fields.
- About 35% of Americans have an unused Christmas present collecting dust in their closets.
