Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle for the Holidays

From Thanksgiving to New Year's Americans throw away twenty-five percent more waste than usual. Of the waste discarded about eighty percent could be reused or recycled. Check out these six tips for your holiday festivities and help keep Lake Forest green.

  1. Use durable, reusable plates and serving ware.
  2. Choose gifts with minimal packaging.
  3. Consider alternative gifts: event tickets, gift cards, or charitable donations in the recipient's name.
  4. Save gift wraps, gift bags, ribbons and bows for future use.
  5. Send email invitations and e-greeting cards.
  6. Minimize food waste: carefully plan your menu and ask guests to take home leftovers.
