Kathryn Kellogg with her christmas tree. See SWNS story SWNYzero; An eco-warrior will enjoy her FOURTH zero-waste Christmas this year - using only recycled materials and buying NO material gifts. Instead of drowning in the usual sea of laminated wrapping paper and plastic packaging, every element of Kathryn Kelloggs festivities will be waste-free. The content creator, 28, gives experience gifts not objects, chooses recycled wrapping paper, steers clear of baubles and tinsel, and wont serve food that comes in non-recyclable packaging. Her biodegradable decorations are made from garlands of recycled wine corks, dehydrated oranges and cinnamon sticks. Kathryn celebrated her first zero-waste holiday in 2015 and now cannot imagine a Christmas with garbage bags full of trash. She said: Its a normal Christmas but theres not going to be any trash left over.Theres nothing I miss about a traditional Christmas. I do everything I used to do but I think about the environment. Between Thanksgiving and New Years Day, the amount of trash produced in the US soars by a staggering 25 per cent, according to the National Environmental Education Foundation. Americans discard an estimated 38,000 miles of ribbon, 15 million used Christmas trees and $11 billion worth of packing material. Kathryn and husband Justin Norton, 31, an audio engineer, will not add to those numbers as they celebrate Christmas while producing zero waste. The couple have decorated their home in San Francisco, California, USA, with a real tree, vintage Christmas baubles and homemade ornaments.
