It’s the biggest shopping day of the year:

A recent U.S. Environmental Protection Agency report found that non-food products and packaging are associated with 37 percent of America’s greenhouse-gas emissions – making it the largest source of greenhouse gases. A similar analysis by PPI puts that number closer to 44 percent when the emissions used to produce imported products are included.

Styrofoam, cardboard, plastic wrap — there’s got to be a better way.
