How to Plan a Green Thanksgiving Dinner

4:41 AM
More and more consumers are demanding environmental consciousness on all fronts, including during holidays such as Thanksgiving. You can still maintain your Thanksgiving tradition, but now you can integrate a few modifications to start some new, green-friendly traditions of your own.
Instructions
  1. Step
    1

    Encourage family and friends to travel together. If they live on the way (or even a little out of the way) encourage them to pick up a family member who lives nearby and car pool. Or consider having the feast at an equidistant point. Saving fuel gets the party off to a great and green start.

  2. Step
    2

    Create a green suggestion list. Get everyone involved by adding green tips to your invites. If you don't have invitations, just send a nice card with a few suggestions.

  3. Step
    3

    Buy locally. Patronize your local farmer's markets, local growers and producers. Not only will you notice a taste difference, but you'll also be supporting your local community and everything that comes with it, including the reduction in fuel associated for shipping produce from far-off places.

  4. Step
    4

    Limit meat. Integrate Tofurkey (tofu or soy-based faux turkey) into the menu. Or offer a smaller meat-based option, such as a small ham or hen, for die-hard carnivores or traditionalists.

  5. Step
    5

    Watch your paper consumption. Invitations and cards should be sent via email. If that's not an option, select recycled paper. Use cloth napkins and reusable utensils and containers.

  6. Step
    6

    Lead by example. If a disposable container or soda can sneaks in, make sure you have recycling containers in a prominent position. Demonstrate that this is a lifestyle choice, not something to just do certain days, such as holidays or when it's convenient.
