MEVO’s Tips for Thanksgiving

First off, let’s get all introductions out of the way. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Second, we here at MEVO would like to share some ways to make your Thanksgiving a little bit greener—so you can enjoy Turkey Day while helping the environment.

  1. Buy local. Fresh, local food tastes better and is better for the planet in general.
  2. Make less food…How often have you thrown out a dish because there HAD to be sweet potatoes on the table?
  3. Turn down the heat. All that cooking heats up the house.
  4. Recycle. Commit to recycling everything from your Thanksgiving dinner and make it your practice.
  5. Compost whatever wasted food from Thanksgiving dinner there is.
  6. MOST IMPORTANT…be thankful for what you have and enjoy the time with your family and friends.
