Go Green during the Holidays in Arlington

Going Green doesn't mean become the Grinch! I was hovering around the Arlington County website and saw this great page. It gave a bunch of ways to be better to the environment around the holidays.

Look at this tidbit of information from their website, "Every year during the period from Thanksgiving to New Years, Americans generate an extra one million tons of trash per week."

Can you say WOW!?
