Summary
Now deep in the holiday season, even in 2020, we have much to celebrate. But, in the U.S. especially, celebration can lead to a spike in emissions and waste from travel (despite CDC recommendations), obligatory gift-giving, temporary decorations, and feasts.

In this episode, we don't tell you to sit alone in a dark room and gnaw on the stems from your windowsill herb garden. Mental and physical health are inseparable and important, so we outline ways to think and act more sustainably while still having a wonderful holiday time.
