The holiday season is fast approaching. And with every holiday season comes a lot of celebratory food and drinks! Unfortunately, when considering food packaging and decoration, there is often a lot of plastic waste whether it comes in the form of food packaging or other plastic packaging! This year, we have some tips to help you have an eco-friendly Thanksgiving. 

Bring Your Reusable Shopping Bags and Produce Bags to the Shops 

Instead of walking out of the grocery store with new plastic bags to hold your items, walk INTO the grocery store with your Reusable Shopping Bags and Organic Produce Bags. This might be one of the easiest eco-friendly tips we can share! If you think that you’re likely to forget to bring reusable bags, leave a few in the car or in your handbag so that they’re always within reach! 

Eat Green 

Hosting this year’s Thanksgiving party or bringing a dish over to the party? Let’s think about the food we’re eating! When you purchase locally grown food or organic food, you’re immediately helping the environment as you’re cutting down on carbon emissions. How? Because the food doesn’t need to travel as far – you’re supporting local farmers! In addition to this, you’re also eliminating pesticide and chemical residues from entering yours and your party guest’s bodies. 

Rethink Your Turkey  

Remember – shop local and organic! Instead of buying the cheapest turkey to feed your family and friends, shop around choose an organic pasture-raised turkey that was sustainably and ethically bred. And don’t forget, by supporting local, you are also helping create more jobs and grow local economies. 

Compost Those Food Scraps 

Any food scraps (e.g. the ends of fruit and vegetables that get chopped off and don’t makit into your salad or turkey stuffing) along with eggshells and coffee grounds are perfect to pop into your compost bin! Why compost? Because it’s hugely beneficial to the environment and it reduces the amount of food waste thrown away into landfill. 

Store Leftover Foods Without Plastic 

Instead of using plastic containers or plastic wraps to cover leftover food, try using Reusable Wax WrapsOrganic Food Covers and glass containersWax Wraps are a resuable, washable and sustainable alternative to plastic wrap. Our Wax Wraps are made from organic cotton, candelilla wax and non GMO soy wax, tree resin and jojoba oil, last up to 6-12 months and can be used to cover almost anything! As for the Organic Food Covers, they are made from organic cotton and feature a food-based inner lining to keep your leftovers fresher for long. 

Make natural decorations 

Instead of buying Thanksgiving decorations from the shops, head outside and see what kind of greenery and pieces of nature you can find to style in your table centerpieceAdorn your table with carved pumpkins, leaves, pinecones or branches. These are all natural options which are compostable and biodegradable! 

Say Thank You  

Last but not least, tell your guests and the people you care about how much you care about them, and how they have helped to make the world a better place. After all, that’s what Thanksgiving is all about, right? Sometimes, all it takes is to plant a seed in their mind before they follow in your eco-friendly footsteps too!
