Memorial Day is right around the corner, and it’s time to start preparing for this year’s celebration. Yet unfortunately, Memorial Day is another holiday that we must celebrate differently this year. While the prospect of having a Memorial Day weekend picnic with friends and family is off the table due to the uncertain circumstances of coronavirus and quarantine restrictions, and saddest of all, most public Memorial Day parades have been canceled, it does not mean that you have to give up on your Memorial Day celebration. Although our plans may be a little different this year, there are still ways to enjoy Memorial Day weekend with your family while staying safe and obeying social distancing guidelines. Get your family together for an old-fashioned cookout with a new (and green!) twist! And you don't need to go far to enjoy a meal in the sun. Heading to your backyard barbequing instead of a local park gives you the same appreciation for the beauty of the earth and the taste of your food.
Barbeque doesn’t have to be wasteful or harmful to the environment. In keeping with our tradition of helping you coast through the most special times of the year while keeping your green reputation intact, we’ve collected just a few Eco Party
tips for being a bit greener this Memorial Day and make the holiday a complete success:
Start with Eco Party Warehouse Partyware.
Buy ingredients from a local farmer or purveyor.
If you have a local farmer's organic market in your community, start cultivating a greater appreciation of food by shopping there.
Change the grilling techniques.
When cranking up the grill, one green Eco Party tip would be to rethink your grilling methods. Instead of using charcoal, which emits dangerous toxins into the air, consider using grills with propane gas, natural gas, or solar energy. Using these alternative sources reduces air pollution.
Get creative with dessert decorating.
Sweet treats are a major part of the Memorial Day celebration that can also be used to take your holiday decor up a notch. Make your treats red, white, and blue and creatively display them on Eco Party's white bagasse plates
to make your food presentation stand out. You can, for example, chop up some strawberries and bananas and set them in our natural rectangular palm leaf tray
with some blueberries in one corner to form an American flag giving a charming festive appeal to your countertop decor.
Don’t let anything go to waste.
At the end of the night, there’s the inevitable clean up and the usual throw-out. But you don’t have to let your leftovers contribute to our landfills. Simply use take out containers so you can keep the leftovers. And you also don't have to worry about washing the pile of dishes - Eco Party Warehouse tableware provides convenient cleanup for you and the Planet, you can only choose whether you want to compost, toss them out, or throw them into the fire pit.
