Use Reusable Settings: If you are hosting your BBQ at home or in a local park, remember to use re-usable plates and silverware. There really is not reason to use disposable plastic or paper settings, as its just as easy to wash the dishes. However, if you are hosting a large shindig and you are not the dish washing type, we suggest you use biodegradable or recyclable dishes, plates, and forks.

5 Eco-Friendly Vacation Destinations
Thursday, May 5, 2011
Careful planning is a key when trying to save money. We planned out our trip to visit many great places with little cost and travel expenses. We went to places that we had memberships, did you know joining local museums provides access to free or discounted museums. Having a family member over 62 travel with you that has a Parks Pass provides great places to visit for free.
We visited the Las Vegas Natural History Museum for $8.00 for six people.
The LIED Children Museum for $9.50 for six people
M&M World is free
MGM Lion Habitat for free
Volcano Eruption free
Pirate Show free
Caesars Fall of Atlantis free
Plus many many more for free
Our car only moved once in 5 days and it was very brief.
Stay tuned for more updates.....
In assessing the impact of a trip (about 300 miles each way), the environmental news website Grist.org calculates that driving would generate about 104 kilograms of carbon dioxide (CO2)—a leading greenhouse gas—per typical medium-sized car, regardless of the number of passengers, while flying on a commercial jet would produce some 184 kilograms of CO2 per passenger. Since there are 6 of us traveling driving is definitely better for the environment. Being on a budget the cost flying is much greater than driving even with the high gas prices. Flying 6 round trip with great air fare would cost at least $600 and driving cost $100 or a tank of gas.
