Thanksgiving is almost upon us. For a lot of us that means a time to be thankful for what we have. People invite their family and friends and they all get together to have a merry feast. While it is fun, it also does some major damage to the ecosystem. I'm writing to help you how you can prevent that. Here are just a few tips on how to have a Green Thanksgiving:
1. Don't Throw away your leftovers:
Many people are rushing out to buy a whole bunch of food that will end up being thrown away the day after tomorrow. Send it home with family or friends, or better yet, give it to those less fortunate than yourself. Drop them off at food bank or homeless shelter.
2. Plan ahead:
A lot of people buy to much food and like I mentioned above most of it is thrown away. If you make a plan of who's coming over and how much people eat, you'd not only save money but save food for other people who may need it more.
3. Please Recycle:
Not only does recycling make it easier for you to put waste away in the garbage can, but it also prevents the landfills being filled with so much unnecessary bottles and cans that could go to a better purpose than the dump.
I hope you all have a very happy, and green, thanksgiving!
