Tips to Greenify Thanksgiving

November 24, 2009

Happy Thanksgiving! At the Green Business Alliance, we hope you have a wonderful holiday season this year, with a lot to be thankful for as you sit down to the big meal.

We want you to enjoy the holiday with all your loved ones gathered around. And we hope you are enjoying it as greenly as you can. What do we mean by that?

Well, we leave it to you to decide what the main course should be. It's an interesting decision in the grocery store these days. Our pilgrim forebearers didn't have to decide between "broadbreasted whites" (a bird bred exclusively and very successfully for its broad breasts), free range turkeys (the broadbreasted ones have a hard time standing up on their little legs with all the meat on those breasts), heritage birds and of course, tofurkys. They only had wild game. And they were grateful.

But such things are an individiual and often, familial decision.

A few Greenification decisions that you can make:

Organize your shopping list in order to make as few trips as possible to the grocery stores. I'm sure you'll agree that at this time of the year, more than any other, fewer trips equals a happier shopper.

Use the good china. Yes, holiday dinners with friends or family are exactly the reason for having those grand plates and beautiful silverware. Not even children deserve paper plates on Thanksgiving. (Imagine trying to eat a drumstick off of a paper plate? It's heresy!) Save the paper plates for when you truly need them: sending leftovers home with guests.

Need table decorations? We recommend pumpkins, squashes and maybe a few nuts. These are all things that can be eaten later. A table centerpiece built around butternut squash is an edible arrangement I'd look forward to... roasted with leftovers.

Cooking your own turkey? Organize what is being cooked so that several dishes can be in the oven during various times. Small amounts of energy saved in cooking the meal will help underwrite its cost.

And finally, when the meal is done, compost all the scraps. Put the table scraps into the container out back and by spring, you may have something very valuable.

We hope your Thanksgiving is a wonderful meaningful time for you and your family and friends to gather together and be grateful for what we have. We hope you'll be thankful for a great year of successfully conserving, shrinking your carbon footprint and making efforts to Greenify many aspects of your life.

「 生蛇 」( 醫學名稱是 『帶狀疱疹』Shingles ) 是由水痘病毒引起的疾病。水痘癒合後,病毒在神經細胞潛伏多年,日後隨時重新激活後導致的帶狀皮疹,就是「 生蛇 」。因此,凡感染過水痘的人,都有機會「 生蛇 」。病發時,身體某一部位會感到內疼或劇痛,通常是臉或背部及腰部的一側;這時由於病毒從脊髓處沿其中華一條神經擴散到身體以及去到連接的皮膚表面,形成紅疹及小水疱。帶狀疱疹疫苗Zostavax康栢苗 (蛇針)能助減低「 生蛇 」的機會,有效預防: 「 生蛇 」( 帶狀疱疹 ) 成效高達 70% 「 生蛇 」的後遺神經痛:即使紅疹痊癒,神經痛還可以持續數月或數年。年紀越大,持續有後遺 神經痛風險越高 「 生蛇 」引起的急性及長期痛症 不適用人士: 曾對疫苗成分包括明膠( Gelatin ) 及紐奧黴 ( Neomycin ) 有過敏性休克反應的人士 有原發及繼發性免疫系統問題的病患者,或正服用抑鬱免疫系統藥物(如高劑量膽固醇)的病人 患有肺結核,正發病及未經治療人士 孕婦

Good post. I be taught one thing more difficult on totally different blogs everyday. It should at all times be stimulating to read content material from other writers and practice a little bit something from their store. I’d want to make use of some with the content on my blog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide you with a link in your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.
