Between traveling, hosting family members and cooking, there’s a lot to be stressed out about during Thanksgiving, but being environmentally-conscious shouldn't add to this list.  Here are a few things you can try this year to help the environment:

Use real plates and napkins

It might be tempting to want to use paper and plastic dinnerware to make cleanup as easy as possible, but depending on how many guests are at dinner, the amount of plastic adds up very fast. Plus real dinnerware looks nicer and your guests will be impressed.

Spending additional time with your family in a packed car may not be the most enticing thing in the world, but cutting down on the amount of cars drastically reduces your carbon footprint.

Be mindful when shopping

No one wants to be the host that runs out of food on Thanksgiving, but you also don’t have to be the host that makes too many dishes either. Make a grocery list of things that you think people will actually eat and correct quantities, that way you don’t second-guess yourself at the store.
