Plastics Make it Possible® Offers Simple Tips On Doing More With Less
WASHINGTON, Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Americans produce 25 percent more household waste during the holiday season-that's an extra 1.2 million tons of trash per week from Thanksgiving to New Year's Day.

For example, waste-saving plastic packaging and reusable containers can result in less food and packaging waste from meals and entertaining, during the holidays and year round."
Here are some examples of how consumers can do more with less this holiday season and beyond:
