'Gobble Green' This Thanksgiving

Published 11.23.2009


While celebrating Thanksgiving with traditional foods and family fun, you also can "Gobble Green" with these suggestions from The Nature Conservancy. By eating local foods in season, your carbon emissions (food miles) are reduced. Let nature and your landscape decorate your table: Soy or beeswax candles rather than petroleum-based reduce soot production. Check your vehicle air filter and tires to reduce carbon emissions and get better mileage before travelling. Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving from Penn College's Energy Conservation Committee, which offers these regular "green tips" on PCToday.
