Packed full of holiday activities, the last couple months are full of fun, stress, cookies, and a lot of extra waste.  With all of the extra food, gifts, and decorations, household waste from Thanksgiving to New Year's increases by 25%!  Now, I don't want you to lose any of your holiday cheer, but here are some tips on how you can keep your garbage bin a little less cluttered this season:

  1. Know how many people are coming to dinner so that no food will go to waste - and always make a grocery list!
  2. Bring your reusable shopping bags while buying food and presents.
  3. Use reusable dishware, utensils, and napkins for your gatherings
  4. Send electronic invitations 
  5. Limit the amount of wrapping paper by using reusable gift bags or fabric
  6. Consider gifting zero-waste items such as homemade goods, concert tickets, or an experience you know the person will enjoy!
  7. Use rechargeable batteries in your electronics and unplug your decorations when you're out of the house
  8. Purchase your food and gifts from local stores whenever possible
  9. Buy a tree that was grown locally and recycle or compost it after the season.  Or buy a potted tree that you can later plant in your yard
  10. Pay attention to your regular recyclables to make sure everything in the bin is cleaned and prepared correctly!

Happy Holidays!
