As thanksgiving rounds the corner, have you thought about greening your thanksgiving celebrations? there are many tips out there and here are a few:
- ask yourself, do you have to travel? staying home/going local is best. cut back on emissions by carpooling or take the train. always turn down your thermostat and off the lights when you leave town.
- Food …
- buy local, maybe from your farmers market. try vegetarian meals. try organic drinks. cut back on how much food you need. simplify. And be sure to compost your food scraps.
- Decorating ….
- reuse materials & get creative! use natural materials like acorns or pine-cones, painted gourds, or dried leaf placecards. use beeswax or soy candles. try a thrift store if you need to pick up extras.
