Thanksgiving weekend has come to an end. That means a couple of things: you've already finished your Christmas shopping by 8 o'clock the morning of Black Friday, the elastic waistband pants have been put back in the closet until Christmas, and it's time to set up the holiday decorations.
In case you've been living under a rock this year, you might have noticed that there's a big push for sustainable and eco-friendly products and services. This year's Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center is sporting LED lights powered by solar panels-- so 2007. Aside from consuming less energy, LED's (Light Emitting Diodes) contain fewer chemicals and never get hot. Good news if you've ever had that Christmas tree go up in flames before. They may cost more, but their lifetime is about 100,000 hours (that'll last you a couple holiday seasons).
