Anchors - And now for this month's Environmental Minute, here's Nick Sousa and some dumb-looking guy! (Intro montage plays) Pike:  Ho ho ho homies!  Mr. Pike and Nick here to drop some environmental knowledge and make your holidays both fun and enviro friendly! Nick: The holiday season often generates a tremendous amount of waste.  What can we do to help out? Pike:  Glad you asked, Nick!  One big problem is that most wrapping paper is not recyclable, so try using newspaper, reusable gift bags, or even something cool like a scarf or bandana! Nick:  Sweet idea, Mr. Pike.  You could also consider switching to LED Christmas lights.  They use way less energy. Pike:  Good call, Nick.  I was also thinking about the amount of electronics that get thrown out every year. They leach toxic metals into the soil, and that's no bueno.  If you're lucky enough to get a new phone or tablet this vacation, you should definitely recycle your old one at a retail store like Staples, instead of just tossing it out. Nick:  Another solid idea, Mr. Pike .   Here's one more for ya: if you don't need 2-day shipping from something like Amazon, then don't do it!  Often those rushed shipping methods are less efficient, and actually produce more carbon emissions to get to your house so fast.  A little patience goes a long way. Pike:  Word. Alright that'll do it for us.  Pike and Nick signing off, and wishing everyone happy holidays!
