Letter Summer is coming

Wednesday, May 22 2019

With longer days and warmer weather arriving, the opportunities to picnic and party outside increases. This is a good time to think of preparations and cleanup.

Thinking back to the times of the picnic basket, it was automatic that all the plates, utensils, napkins and cups be packed and afterwards taken back home. Do we still do this now? Does a host of a party need to provide single use items for the guests? Is it too much to ask that the guests bring certain items to avoid too much cleanup or trash?

Recycling is not the answer, especially now that our collections are overflowing. Let’s plan to reduce our load on the environment.
