Many of us like to have people over on occasion…. sometimes we even like to have many people over and it can create a mess along with a poopton of garbage. That does not mean, however, that you need to change your “green” ways. Here are a few tips to making your backyard blasts a little more green.
1. Set up recycling – You will likely need to have a garbage and why not set up just a few to help your guests help you recycle. Now, you probably don’t want to make this a Rubik’s Cube of recycling, but just a few bins designated for, and clearly labelled, recycling products can go a long way. Setting up a bin for cans, bottles and trash can help you be more environmentally aware.
2. Consider a Keg – If you are having a BBQ where you expect beer to be drank, consider purchasing a keg instead of cans/bottles. The kegs are usually reused and if you are using recycled cups, you can sleep a little easier knowing that you helped be a little more friendly to the world.
3. Keep the sprays green – Bugs suck and you might be tempted to spray crap all over the place to help keep them away. Try to find green and healthy alternatives to help you keep your yard bug free and environmentally friendly.
