July Green Tip

Summertime! Picnics! Cookouts! Don’t forget to be “green.” It’s shocking how those paper goods mount up in the landfills, but it doesn’t have to be that way. By taking your washable plates and utensils you will save money and reduce trash. Now, if you don’t have any “suitable” dishes for this purpose (i.e. old, mismatched or unwanted plates and flatware) then take a look at a discount store such as Ocean State Joblot where you will find inexpensive, unbreakable plates as well as utensils. You might also check out the Goodwill Store or other thrift shop for even better bargains.

And don’t forget: our annual church picnic on July 17 will be green too – BYOD (bring your own dishes.)
