How to have a green and clean Thanksgiving
We’re grateful to have stormwater troopers like you protecting our High Desert this Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to bring friends and family together and put your green habits into practice. Here are three easy ways to green-up your festivities.
Compost your food waste this Thanksgiving! There’s no question that we all buy more food during the holidays, and inevitably we’ll create more food waste, too. Composting food scraps reduces the waste that ends up in landfills, and it also helps bring nutrients back to the soil. Click here to read our composting guide!
Use the Good Dishes and Silverware
Disposable plastic dishes and utensils create lots of unnecessary waste. Reusable dishes and silverware are always a safe bet. If those aren’t available, use plates, cups, napkins and utensils made from recycled or compostable materials.
Host a clean-up
Make an impact and give back to your community by hosting a neighborhood clean-up. Gather your family and friends and spend a few hours picking up trash and cleaning up your neighborhood. Clean-ups are a great volunteer opportunity for people of all ages.
