With the holiday season in full effect, here are a few reasons why you should consider the following tips for hosting a fun and eco-friendly holiday party.
- Use reusable dinnerware, glasses, and napkins. Extra point if they’re biodegradable!
- Skip the craft store supplies for beautiful natural, biodegradable decorations you can find in nature. Gourds, pinecones, leaves, and acorns are examples of natural décor.
- Squash peels, beet greens and carrot tops can be used to enrich your potting soil. Invest in a compost bin and turn kitchen scraps into something useful instead of throwing them away.
- Encourage family members to bring their own reusable containers to take leftovers home after the feast.
This holiday season do not forget about mother nature. By following the tips above, you will help us keep our watershed clean and healthy.
