Labor Day is here, time to celebrate all your hard work! Relax and enjoy time with family and friends, and remember to keep the day Eco-friendly! Small changes can have a huge impact on the environment!
Use green products as noted by Maid Brigade, “It is not always possible to avoid paper products, especially during a party, but today there are more eco-friendly paper products available. When you need to use disposable dishes, look for products that are recycled, biodegradable, or made from unbleached paper products”
Just Energy reminds us to go local. “Take advantage of the end-of-summer growing season and pick up from your local farmers’ market the fruits and vegetables currently at their peak. Depending on where you live, in-season crops will vary. But because they’re grown nearby and without any unnatural “help” in the form of harmful fertilizers or pesticides, your produce will certainly be sweet and healthy for you and the environment.”
A Labor Day party wouldn’t be complete without a barbecue. You can find great tips on tasty and Eco-friendly barbecuing on Grist!
