We do our best to be environmentally conscious every day in an effort to promote conservation and a green friendly plant. There are little things you can do to make a big difference in environment conservation.
As spring is now (finally!) underway, we know you most likely want to enjoy your home and entertain guests. In celebration of Earth Day, we gathered top tips for maintaining an environmentally conscious lifestyle at home while entertaining.
Shop responsibility. According to the David Suzuki Foundation, the shopping bag revolution is underway. More than one million plastic bags are used every minute and they are entangling and killing marine life and their micro plastic pieces are leaching onto the ground and contaminating crops. Make a positive impact for the environment simply by using reusable bags while shopping for food items for your next dinner party. Some of these bags can even be zipped up into tiny wallet-sized pouches, making them perfect for easy storage.
Use environmentally-friendly storage. Avoid packing up leftovers after dinner in Saran wrap or plastic. Use reusable food containers to keep food fresh while reducing material demand on the environment.
Wash the eco-friendly way. After entertaining your guests, make sure you only run the dishwasher when it’s full to save 100 pounds of CO2. The bonus is you’ll also save $40 a year by doing this simple task.
