5 Ways to Host an Eco-Friendly Cookout



Eating al fresco may feel eco-friendly, but outdoor dining can result in excessive waste if you aren’t careful. One of the keys to being green is to reduce or eliminate waste wherever possible. If you keep that in mind throughout your preparations, you’ll be off to a good start.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Follow these steps to plan a greener cookout and take less of a toll on Mother Nature:

Skip the paper invitations and use online services like Evite, Paperless Post, or Facebook events.

Keep track of what everyone is bringing ahead of time. This way you’ll avoid ending up with five different potato salads that go uneaten.

Request RSVPs so you can prepare the right amount of food and not have any go to waste.

Your outdated report mentions nothing about the critical need to social distance and to wear masks. Instead, you seem to promote *not* doing these things. Please update your report, rather than simply recycling old ideas.
