Ways to Green Your Winter Activities
1. Don’t Trash Old Ski Equipment
You may already be aware that skis, snowboards and boots can be resold or donated when you get new equipment. But you can also recycle these products if they are beyond repair. The plastic can be shredded to create decking or lawn furniture, making them useful all year round.
2. Carpool to the Mall
