  • Grill – A solar powered grill is the most eco-friendly way to grill these days, but if that’s not an option for you opt for a grill that burns natural gas rather than charcoal, as it is cleaner.
  • Food – Shop at a local farmer’s market for your BBQ ingredients. You can usually find great local organic produce, breads & meats.
  • Tableware Switch to biodegradable dishes.
  • NapkinsUse washable napkins to reduce paper waste.
  • Compost – Compost leftover food scraps & other organic trash.

Happy Grilling!

    I like the compost idea since there is always a lot of waste after a picnic. I’m not a good enough griller to use charcoal so I have that covered :)

    I love the sweater to vest DIY, plus the recycling information. I wish more people would care about the environment to recycle, stop using toxic chemicals, and stop throwing plastic and aluminum or glass in the regular garbage. I just don’t get it….
