The Holiday season often brings on lots of pounds and lots of waste! But with tips for a Green Thanksgiving you can easily minimize the amount of fat and the amount of waste around you this holiday season.
Green during Dinner:
Cloth Napkins can be rewashed and reused!
Eco Friendly Bamboo Plates
Collect for others:
Keep leftover cans from thanksgiving: (green beans, carrots, and other non-perishables) and bring them into a local school near you! Many schools participate in can drives that donate your unused cans to homeless shelters all over the city.
Try a new 'gobble gobble':
Buy a Pastured Turkey: Pasture raised turkeys are low in fat and high in protein. They are also free of hormones, steroids and antibiotics!
Shop locally and buy organic foods for your table! This removes harmful pesticides and chemicals that you nor the environment need.
Decorating with Nature:
Create beautiful decorations with stuff from your own backyard: Using pinecones, evergreen branches and leaves.
Donate your Compost:
Give your food scraps to a local Neighborhood-Based Food Waste Drop-Off center. You can become a part of the movement to waste less and help make NYC cleaner and greener!
