Green Thanksgiving

With Thanksgiving just a week away
It's time to start prepping for the big day
Turkey, stuffing, cranberries and yams
Keep it green while cooking for the fam.

Prepping Your Feast

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it's time to head out and pick up all the necessary supplies to prep for a delicious (and green) holiday meal.

  • Local farmers' markets are the best resource for the freshest and greenest produce to compliment your turkey dinner. Pick up essential Thanksgiving goodies like cranberries and yams while grabbing a few gourds to decorate the table.
  • Free-range turkeys can be picked up at your favorite local grocer or ordered online and delivered to your home. Enjoy a turkey that's only fed quality grains and is also free of any additives or hormones.
  • Cloth napkins and table linens are an elegant and eco-friendly way to decorate your holiday table. Whether you add some color or keep it simple, you'll be able to throw everything in the washer and use again for another occasion.
