Go Green this Labor Day Weekend with ECOMAIDS' Tips and Tricks for Hosting the Perfect "Green" Event
Staten Island, NY (I-Newswire) August 27, 2013 - Labor Day weekend is one of the great American celebrations - not complete without the quintessential backyard barbeque. Whether your barbeque is a family affair or a neighborhood blowout, you can take action to protect the environment with "green-themed" party plans.
There are several simple steps that you can to immediately decrease the harmful environmental impact of a large celebration:
- Choose food items that are locally grown. This supports local farmers and businesses, and reduces pollution that results from delivering food items from farm to market. Another bonus - locally grown food is fresher than the frozen items found at chain supermarkets.
- Gas and propane grills leave behind less waste than charcoal grills. Charcoal grills produce carbon monoxide and other omitted gases that harm the environment.
- Clean your grill with soy and natural cleaners rather than with petroleum-based cleaners. To prevent food buildup, cut an onion in half and rub it over the rack once it has heated up, then brush a bit of olive oil on it so the food doesn't stick. Once the grilling is done, mix baking soda and water to create a paste that can clean your grill with a barbeque brush.
- Opt for washable cutlery, linens and dishes over disposable ones. Paper and plastic products take a toll on landfills and the environment.
- Avoid plastic water bottles when hydrating this holiday. Serve your guests with "outside" tableware or offer them reusable water bottles with a filter.
- Complete your after-party cleanup by using green cleaners. ECOMAIDS uses non-toxic cleaning products and methods that are safe for people, pets and planet.
