Fun in the Sun
It is officially picnic time! When planning your summer events, don't forget to incorporate the same sustainable practices you use when planning your corporate events.
Pack your basket with china instead of disposable plates and use cloth napkins instead of paper napkins. Colorful bandanas as napkins spice up the meal!
Buy local food for your meals. Now is the time for wonderful fresh food--especially for seasonal produce. Challenge yourself to serve most of the items from within 100 miles. One trip to the farmer's market may check off all of the items on your list.
Serve beverages from pitchers or large containers instead of individual bottles. Isn't fresh lemonade better anyway?
Use LED lights for lighting up your evening outdoor celebrations. They will save money in the long run. While you are at it, put them on a timer for the rest of the summer too!
It's finally summer, let's get outside and enjoy nature!
