Eco-Friendly Labor Day Tips:

  • Get Rid of Disposables – Disposable forks, spoons and knives might make for an easy cleanup, but they are a serious environmental problem. Opt for reusable dishware that you can toss in the dishwasher after your celebration.
  • Serve Drinks in Pitchers – Instead of individual cans or bottles, serve drinks in pitchers. Water with lemon, fruit juice and even sangria can be the perfect way to quench your Labor Day BBQ thirst.
  • Eat Locally – When was the last time that you visited your local farmers market? There are plenty of end-of-the-season vegetables that can make your BBQ healthy and eco-friendly.
  • Buy The Rest In Bulk – When you do head out to the supermarket, make sure that you buy the food you need in bulk. This means less packaging and less waste.
  • Set Up A Recycling Bin – If you do opt for bottles and cans, be sure to put a recycling bin in an easily accessible location for party guests. This will make recycling nice and easy — and we’re here to pick it up for you afterwards!
