Reducing Santa's carbon footprint
Santa is the man. He's been doing a fantastic job for hundreds of years, but many of his practices are out of date and it's time for updates to reduce his carbon footprint.
With Santa's worldwide tour only days away, it's the perfect time to take a look at his environmental impact and see if he can run a more eco-friendly operation. Since his line of work affects every child on the planet, it only makes sense to point out how Santa can be more green. He obviously wants to be green — he already eschews the big jets of many package delivery companies and opts instead for an old-fashioned animal-powered sled. But does he really need all of those reindeer, which produce methane gas?
Let's just hope that publishing this list doesn't put us on Santa's naughty list. But trading in some of Santa's red for a bit of green might help Santa push his industry into the 21st century.
