Albuquerque, NM - Both red and green may by the traditional Christmas colors, but the Sierra Club has tips to help specifically increase the "green" in holiday celebrations. Jennifer Hattam, of Sierra magazine, offers advice for saving energy and the environment this season. She says one of the simplest ways to have greener holidays is to switch out those old lights on the tree.

"Buy LED holiday lights. They look just like regular lights, but they use 80 to 90 percent less energy, and can save up to $50 on your energy bill."

Hattam adds that families can conserve in a big way when it comes to wrapping gifts. She recommends skipping the conventional wrapping paper in favor of old maps, newspaper comics or children's artwork.

"Regular wrapping paper is usually not made out of recycled materials and often can't be recycled. If every family wrapped just three gifts in a more environmentally friendly way, it could save enough paper to cover 45,000 football fields."

More environmentally friendly holiday tips, on everything from fair-trade chocolate to pesticide-free Christmas trees, can be found online at www.sierraclub.org/christmas.
