Have a Sustainable Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is a holiday everyone looks forward to. It’s a time for friends and family, good food and… carbon emissions?!? Let's plan on doing it right this holiday season and think about where our food comes from and where the waste will go. Below, you'll find a few tips that will get you on the right track and make it easy to go green this upcoming Thanksgiving.
- Plan on eating turkey? Opt for an organic, free-range and grass-fed one.
There are immense amounts of great sites out there that have vegetarian recipes.

- Purchase your fruits and veggies from the farmer’s market. Support your community and use the Eat Well Guide to find local producers near you.
- Reduce waste. Think about how much tinfoil, paper goods and leftover food are thrown away. To reduce your waste, keep or give away the leftovers, use your compost bin and use reusable serving ware.
- Don’t travel. I know this is hard to do since many consider it a family holiday but when you stay at home and spend it with friends, neighbors or near by family you reduce carbon emissions and that unneeded headache.
