How to Host an Eco-Friendly Fourth of July Barbecue

The Fourth of July is right around the corner, and soon, the night sky will shine brightly with the glow of colorful fireworks. Whether you’re hosting a barbecue, afternoon picnic, or evening celebration, it’s important to make conscious decisions that benefit our environment. Read on to discover how you can throw an eco-friendly party this summer, and call Misty Clean for a professional cleaning!

Buy Local 

Did you know that one-third of the food produced in the world is lost or wasted? When you’re purchasing food for your party, consider shopping local. Buying fresh ingredients, like local produce, is a great way to cut down on waste. Check out the nearest farmer’s market and visit the local butcher. Your guests (and the environment) will thank you for it! 

Say No to Plastic 

Plastic cups and straws might make for easy cleanup, but they can take up to 1000 years to decompose! Those cups, plates, and bottles overflow the landfills and empty out into our oceans. Rather than risking more plastic pollution, consider other options. You won’t have to worry about loading the dishwasher with cups, plates, and cutlery when a professional cleaning service can take care of it for you! Rather than handing out plastic bottles of water to guests, place a pitcher of water on each table so they can refill their glass at their leisure. 

Offer a Recycling Bin 

People are more likely to recycle if they can do so easily. Rather than sifting through your trash can for bottles, place several recycling bins next to the trash cans. According to a report by National Geographic, 91% of plastic isn’t recycled. If you do have plastic at your party, ensure that it goes in the right bin. Bottles, cans, bags, and cardboard should be placed in the bins as well.
