Green Your Thanksgiving: Ponder the Bird

Thanksgiving turkey If you’re grateful for the natural world this Thanksgiving, you’ll appreciate this week’s tips, which aim to help you preserve the planet while planning your holiday festivities.

Tip #1: Consider Vegetarian Options

In years past, we’ve suggested skipping the bird — but if you’re not there yet, or know you never will be, you might consider choosing to forgo livestock for the rest of your holiday spread; the New York Times just published a beautiful online compilation of vegetarian and vegan Thanksgiving recipes. Those for whom Tofurky just doesn’t cut it can also think about sticking it to the factory farms by buying from free-range family operations, or by “offsetting” your main course by adopting one of Farm Sanctuary’s gregarious turkeys.

Tip #2: Cook Cleaner

Tip #3: Offset Your Travel

Tip #4: Manage the Aftermath

Tell us: Do you have any vegetarian plans this Thanksgiving?
