The Cleveland Browns may not be in the Super Bowl this year, but you may still be hosting parties on February 3. The Environmental Awareness Committee has some suggestions to keep your party environmentally friendly.
- Skip the disposable party items. Avoid purchasing and using disposable tablecloths, decorations, and plastic serving bowls. None can be recycled.
- Use reusable/recyclable items. Serve beverages that come in aluminum cans and glass bottles that can be recycled. Avoid using paper plates, foil pans, and plastic silverware and cups since they can't be recycled.
- Provide waste and recycle bins. Make sure your guests know where to put recyclable bottles and cans. If you're using plastic utensils or plates that can be washed and stored, put out a bin for them with a sign. Let your guests know you're trying to create less waste.
- And have fun!
