According to an EPA study, the amount of household waste in the U.S. increases by 25 percent between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. That’s about 1 million extra tons. But there are some easy ways to curb waste and reduce your household’s carbon footprint during the season of giving.
- Try balancing out your holiday travel carbon footprint by serving locally grown food.
- Class up the dining experience and reduce waste by using real roasting pans, flatware and dishes, not disposable.
- Think twice before you dump leftovers in the trash…consider composting!
