SOCRRA E-News Update | FEBRUARY 2017
Sports fans are ready for some football this weekend. Whether hosting a party or attending one, there are many ways to encourage the three Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle) for your next gathering .
Choose Finger foods: Plastic utensils and plates are designed for the trash can. Consider preparing a finger food menu served on reusable dishes.
Ditch Disposables: Make a plan for dirty dishes to be loaded in the dishwasher or soaked in a container with soapy water to help make cleanup easier.
Carpool: Encourage guests to carpool to the watch party to reduce the carbon emissions.
Cloth decorations: Cloth napkins, banners and pennants with the team logos or colors are fun reusable party ideas.
Recycling Bin: When guests, arrive explain recycling rules and point out the recycling bin location.
Signage: Recycling containers should have a sign on or above them to remind guests to recycle. Don’t forget to include a list or photos of what is recyclable.
