Gobble Gobble the Green Way

Show your thanks for the environment and healthy living by making eco-friendly choices this holiday season. Some easy ways to make good choices:

- Turkey: The bird is the word, and that word is organic, cage-free and free-range. OK, that's more than one word, but you get the point.

 - Fixings: Buy local! Your food will be fresh, you support your local farmer and you mitigate the environmental impact of mass-distribution.

 - Leftovers: Compost those scraps or have larger quantities donated to a local shelter.

 - Dishes: Use the good china or dish-ware and skip the paper plates. For clean up, be sure to use the dishwasher which uses less water (on average) than hand washing.

- Centerpieces and Name Cards: Get crafty and DIY instead of buying something at the store. You need look no further than your backyard. Use branches with slips of paper tied to it to create a "thankful tree" and have each family member write something on it. Use an ink pin to write names on dried leaves for place cards.
