Green Your Football Season: A Cleaner Tailgate
Whether you're rooting for a team in the NFL or the NCAA, it's possible to enjoy the games a bit less wastefully. This week's tips are about how to do just that.
Tip #1: Master the Tidy Tailgate
Recently tailgated parking lots are strewn with bags, cans, and bottles that'll hang around in landfills for decades. To green your tailgate and cut back on waste, bring something that won't leave a mess. Instead of toting in, say, 27 individual-sized bags of Doritos, use a cloth bag to bring some snack-worthy produce purchased at the local farmers' market. And bring along homemade dressing or dip in a reusable container. As for beer, click here for some expert recommendations.
