Labor Day..............

Tips:

Serve your drinks from a pitcher and use reusable glassware.

Reuse decorations. If you decorate for holidays, there’s a good chance that you have some flag decorations left over from the 4th of July. Use them for Labor Day too! As a bonus, you can leave them up through Patriots’ Day (September 11) and Constitution Day (September 17).

Carpool

Put out permanent markers for guests to write their names on their cups to eliminate waste.

Have Recycle Bins Clearly Marked.
