Pioneer Valley Local First for example starts holiday season with a summer course about Green Building & Sustainable Design at a model ecovillage and sustainable living education center in Shutesbury, Massachusetts.

The green living blog “seeking greener” suggests to go outdoors & save money and while doing that you can take your camera and save the best pictures to take part in “The Under Water, Over Land Challenge”, the planet's premiere nature and outdoors video production contest. Or simply make your summer greener.

Friends of the Earth have collected some ideas for a greener holiday season.

But whatever you do, don’t forget to relax!
