Gift Outside the Box


The amount of household waste in the U.S. increases an average of 25% between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day ( EPA). Wrapping paper, decorations, packaging, and leftover food (and sometimes even the gifts we buy), often don’t last long and end up in the waste stream. This holiday season will be like none other. Help us kick off a different way of celebrating the holidays this season.

The Gift Greener Challenge

The Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection and our partners challenge you to reduce waste by thinking differently about how you shop for and give gifts. Together, we can reduce waste, save energy and build a strong local economy. We encourage you to Gift Outside the Box!
