Green Tips for the 4th of July Weekend!

As you begin to plan your parties here are a few ways to stay green during the 4th of July:
  • The obvious choice is to use real plates, utensils, and glass ware. If you cant, the second best option is using biodegradable, compostable, or bamboo products.
  • Make recycling easy and available!
  • Serve finger foods such as sliced fruit, veggies & dip, cheese & crackers, and mini sliders.
  • Drink local.
  • Compost kitchen scraps (remember no meat, only organic material).
  • When BBQ-ing try burning a propane or electric grill.
