Green Your Thanksgiving: The Aftermath

Thanksgiving leftovers 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 #4: Manage Leftovers & Cleanup

After the feast is finished, there are two inevitables: leftovers and cleaning. When storing what’s left, eschew Saran wrap and aluminum foil, which get used a time or two before heading to the landfill; opt instead for reusable containers. Consider, too, asking guests to bring their own containers so they can take home leftovers — that way, you won’t get caught trashing days-old turkey (or Tofurky!) in early December.

As for cleaning, go for green products (or make your own), and choose cloth instead of paper towels.
