The Super Bowl is here and whether you like football or not, you will most likely be watching it (if not just for the commercials). Super Bowl Sunday is a great excuse to get together with friends and just have a good time! Want to make your Super Bowl Party a little more eco friendly this year? Well here are 4 easy tips to help you out.
1. Food: When possible purchase organic and local food to serve. Make your own salsa and/or guac using ingredients from your local farmers market or shop. If you are serving meat look for local or organic meat.
2. Silverware: Use your own! Forget about the disposable plastic ware and simply use your own. If you don't have enough for everyone, ask a few friends to bring their own. Cloth napkins are also a must
3. Beer: Do you have a local brewery in your town? Start there! Grab a growler or 6 pack of beer that was brewed right in your own town. If you do not have a local brewery, try and find one that is the closest or look for an organic brand sold at your local liquor store.
4. Cleaning up: Ask your guests to put their waste in the proper places. Recycle or compost as many items as you can.
If we all follow these 4 simple rules, we can sure make a difference in reducing our carbon footprint this Super Bowl season! Enjoy!
