Summer is the perfect time to host backyard parties and barbeques! Let's not forget about the environment while doing so.
It's easy to host an awesome zero waste gathering, here are some of our best tips and tricks!
1. Borrow, Borrow, Borrow
Running low on chairs, tables, and other supplies? Ask your guests if they can bring an extra foldable chair or table with them. It's also a great idea to ask your friends to bring a snack or side dish!
2. Choose Reusable!
Instead of Paper Napkins- Use Cloth Napkins (these are washable)
Instead of Plastic/Paper Cutlery & Plates-Use Real Dishes and Cutlery or Bamboo Cutlery Sets (you can give these to guests as party favours or reuse them for other parties you host!)
Instead of Plastic Table Cloth- Use a Washable & Durable Table Cloth
Instead of Plastic/Paper Cups- Invest in Party Glasses or Ask Guests to Bring a Reusable Cup!
3. Go Heavy on the Veggies
Although meat is often associated with BBQs and summer parties, there are some awesome summer dishes you can cook up that are great for your health and the environment.
