Toronto Hydro's 12 Days of Christmas - Day 1

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me….a snowglobe made from old toys and a recycled jar.

TORONTO, Dec. 9, 2013 /CNW/ - Toronto Hydro-Electric System Limited (Toronto Hydro) is pleased to launch its 2014 Greening the Holidays campaign.  This year, Toronto Hydro's 12 Days of Christmas features festive conservation and up-cycled craft ideas.

TODAY'S #greenholiday IDEA:

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me: a snowglobe made from old toys and a recycled jar.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXxy4u0TPcQ

For families with small children, it's pretty much guaranteed that there are bunch of those little toys and figurines lying around.  This snowglobe is a genius way to showcase a child's favourite toy and is a perfect keepsake.  See how it's made here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlNT5b_naVY

TODAY'S HOLIDAY CONSERVATION tip:

Use LED lights. They're 90 per cent more efficient than incandescent bulbs.

And, because safety is Toronto Hydro's first priority, it's reminding customers to stay safe this winter season.

  • Using LED lights are not only more efficient, they remain cool to the touch so they're safer for pets and kids, and reduce the chance of a fire.
