Every year, the holidays drag with them stress and waste. They are suppose to be filled with the laughter of friends and family, gathered around a bountiful feast; everyone wearing joyful expressions as they bite into the delightful treats I spent hours making; and me cozying up with a hot cup of coffee, enveloping myself into a blanket, and relishing the peace and quiet while starring into the twinkling lights of a decorated tree…ahh, sounds so nice!
Instead, multiple lists are made, shopping at multiple places ensues, and defaulting to convenience as much as possible. As a person who practices eco-friendly techniques and skills in the kitchen throughout much of the year, and as someone who wants to do better for the environment, why does it all fall apart when Thanksgiving and Christmas comes around?
It’s never too late to keep up “New Year’s” resolutions! 🙌 I wanted to improve on my eco- friendly practices, and here I am: Preparing for the Thanksgiving Feast and Christmas season. Challenge accepted! 💪😅💪
I’m working on my top 10 ways to have an Eco-Awesome Thanksgiving, and finding all kinds of new eco-friendly practices. This involves reducing my plastic waste, as well as time wasters!!! I don’t want a stressful week leading up to Thanksgiving; I want to enjoy it and take part in the joy of the holidays.
Also, I want to hear from you! What are you doing that reduces your waste around the big Feast? What other feasting holidays do you celebrate?
I’m looking forward to hearing from everyone. 😁👋 🦃
