Go Green for the Holidays
This year going green for the holidays is easier than ever with these simple tips.
Find a local farm or farm stand that can be your supplier for all things holiday. Whether its the pumpkins for your pie or the green beans for your casserole, local is always greener. The less traveling you and your food does, the better for the environment.
Food scraps are tossed by the pound on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Use every last bone and veggie scrap to make a hearty stock or start your own veggie scrap garden with the ends of a head of celery or seeds from pumpkins.
Reuse, Reuse, Reuse
By using reusable storage containers and servingware, less waste ends up in the landfill.
Decor for Days
Use potted plants and flowers and pumpkins for decoration, which live long past the day of celebration. And there are so many things to do with pumpkins after they are done decorating!
