5 Tips for an Eco-Friendly Thanksgiving

Nov 23, 2021 | Blog, Tips and How Tos

Thanksgiving is one of the best times of the year. Being with family, cooking delicious food, and a time of rest. But Thanksgiving also creates a lot of waste every year. So how can you have an Eco-Friendly Thanksgiving that you can feel good about? We have you covered. We have 5 tips to make this Thanksgiving the best one yet!

5 Tips for an Eco-Friendly Thanksgiving

  1. Incorporate plant based foods — By incorporating more plant based foods into your Thanksgiving spread, you save our environment on the resources necessary to farm, package, and serve the meat. This is a great idea for a Friendsgiving, or a work event!
  2. Recycle — Try to choose products that come in recyclable or biodegradable packaging. Keeping these out of our landfills not only helps our environment, but also allows for them to be used multiple times, ensuring our resources are not wasted.
  3. Shop Locally — Instead of going to your big grocery store chain, try to find local shops in your area to gather your Thanksgiving ingredients. By simply eliminating the travel time of your food, you can help reduce emissions from shipping.
  4. Food Waste — Don’t let those left overs waste away! Properly store your leftover food and scraps and if you choose not to eat them, try to find a way to give them to someone who will.
  5. Use Nature for decorations — Try this: instead of going to Hobby Lobby or Target for your Thanksgiving Decorations, try to find leaves, pinecones, or other decorations from outside! Not only are these biodegradable, lots of inspiration can be found on sites like Pinterest to dress them up even more!
