Green Your Movie-Watching: Cinema Snacks

Popcorn During those two-hour summer blockbusters, it’s easy to suspend your eco-habits along with disbelief. This week's tips offer ways to get a greener grip on movie-watching.

Tip #2: Choose Concessions Wisely

Whether at the movie theater or in your kitchen, you can opt for more sustainable munchies to eat while watching eco-themed movies. At the megaplex, go for minimally packaged refreshments, like soft pretzels. You can also bring your own reusable soda cup and popcorn container, though it's a good idea to call the theater in advance to find out if it's amenable. For at-home film-watching, prepare vegetarian, waste-free snacks; ChooseVeg and The Veggie Table both offer an array of  recipes.
