    Hi Peter, I love your article-having an earth minded holiday is a such a positive endeavor. Just a note on the decorations;r.e. floral foam is one of the most toxic substances made for the floral industry beside the glues & paints. It quietly has slipped through the wire for years unbeknownst to the public that it is a terribly, toxic recipe of petroleum, chemicals, and plastic. It is as far from eco friendly as it can be; a one time use only product, never biodegrades, and worse-the manufacturers offer no warning or recycling. The MSDS report suggests wearing goggles, gloves, and mask however there is, nor ever has had any warnings. Just one more example of another mainstream product that should not be.
    I spent over 10 years transforming my traditional florist to a sustainable & green minded florist. Sadly, I am the only green certified florist in the country but I continue to bring awareness at any opportunity; including to you. 🙂
    If you ever need any information please contact me as that is my mission in the hope I can enlighten consumers on my industry. There are better ways.
