One of my favorite ways to be more eco-responsible this time of year is by using a living potted tree that can be planted outside after the holiday season.

The actress shared, “To reduce waste I try to use oranges, lemons and grapefruits left in the fridge or buy some of the weirder produce at the local farmer’s market to give them a second life. All I do is thinly slice the fruit, cook over low heat for a few hours until completely dehydrated, thread the dried slices onto twine and hang!

That’s why when we brought the kids to the property to the first time around they nicknamed it the park house.
