Going Green: A Green Thanksgiving

Adventurer B
I love Thanksgiving and, though I am thankful each and every day for the blessings in my life, this special time of year is a great reminder to look for the joy around us.  I love autumn and, of course, I’m thankful for our Planet.  So, this year, let’s have a delicious and green Thanksgiving!

You can really make it a special occasion by using cloth napkins, table cloth, real dishes, and silverware.  This will reduce waste while creating a beautiful memory.  A couple of other reminders are to use reusable shopping bags when heading to the grocery store to shop for the delicious meal; look for locally-grown foods; and carpool to the family homestead.

Want to add a new tradition for Thanksgiving?  How about planting a tree?  In addition to knowing the impact the tree makes on the environment, be reminded of the many things you and your family are thankful for as you watch the tree grow throughout the year.
