Nothing screams “summer” like a barbecue. The smell of good food cooking on the grill, the company of friends and family, and the long summer evenings spent are all characteristics that keep this gathering alive and well. Though there is nothing wrong with enjoying yourself and relishing in the good times, some of our actions at these events can take their toll on the environment.
It is important that, when we are celebrating during this warm season, we don’t forget about the environment, and we make some small effort to make sure that our get-togethers are also sustainable. Whether you’re with a small group or a big crowd, here are some ideas to make sure that one of the things you’re serving at your next barbecue is sustainability.
