Ways And Tips To Go Green

Ways and tips to go green and to save the world.


Tip number one: This one comes from Luke Wilson. Luke says that instead of bottles and cans, he's going to get water right out of the tap. Good tip Luke and looking good!

Tip number two: Have a fling! 
Especially if Luke's there. ;) Really though, bring a container to capture all of the bottles and cans of the day even water bottles, soda cans. Make sure you get all those recycled. 

Tip number three: Try to buy a recycled jersey. 
You're going to probably spill on it anyway. Maybe you'll switch teams if yours doesn't do too well. Look for jerseys at Goodwill or online. Reuse as much as possible. 

Tip number four: Ride your bike to your next game day event. 
It will probably save your life and save the planet too. 

Tip number five: For food, think about grass-fed meat when thinking about burgers. Grass-fed is best for you and the planet. Also, chips. You're going to have chips, right? Sun chips comes in a biodegradable bag. Yes, the bag is loud. 

This tip came in from a viewer: he says transfer the chips into a bowl and leave the bag alone, eliminating the noise. And all your friends are going to be saying all game day long, pass the bowl. 

Seasonal foods are here right now. Great foods that you can serve: apples, sweet corn, broccoli, beets, raspberries, and of course, pie, pumpkin...
