A more eco-friendly Thanksgiving


Thanksgiving was two days ago now, and I couldn’t help but think about the environmental impact of every single American family’s demand for a turkey dinner. These turkeys must be produced in such a ridiculous quantity just for one day out of the year, but this is not something that many people think–or care–about. Even some vegetarians eat turkey on this day. There is also the fact that there are millions of people driving or flying home for this holiday, and I would imagine a lot of food gets wasted. Though Thanksgiving has already passed, here is an article that gives some good ideas about how to have a more environmentally friendly Thanksgiving.
