With turkey day just a few days away, you’ve got some preparations to make to ensure your Thanksgiving meal is memorable. Before you buy the paper plates and disposable decorations, think about ways to make your table beautiful and eco-friendly at the same time.
Maybe it’s already a family tradition to use the nice china, but opt for cloth napkins this year too. They’re washable and reusable, so there will be less waste after the big meal. And the table’s centerpiece is important too, so use real pumpkins, gourds, and squash that can be eaten or composted later. Those fall leaves in the yard could be brought in for a pop of color as well. Don’t forget to display all your old family photos.
