Sustainable Thanksgiving!

This month I want to focus on the ways we can make our Thanksgivings more sustainable! The Holiday season is our most wasteful time of the year, so let's brainstorm some ways to cut down on our waste! Here are some of my ideas:

  • Have a Sustainable Turkey!- buy a local, organic, free-range turkey
  • Make your own decorations
  • Buy products with little to no packaging
  • Buy local, organic produce
  • Buy compostable, biodegradable paper products
  • Make a turkey alternative

Help me add to my list! I'd love your thoughts and ideas!

Ok, so I've decided to share the big news with my loyal readers first!! It's official, my website is up and running (well for the most part!) Tyler Siefken (of Siefken Design) has done an amazing job and I'm excited to share it with you guys. I'm making the official anoucement in my upcoming newsletter, but thought you guys deserved the first look! The products page is still being worked on, I'm adding a feature that will allow you to download pdf versions of my recipes (SOOO excited about this!) Other than that, it's ready to go. Remember though, if you are local (to Portland that is) e-mail me directly about ordering products, that way you can avoid paying shipping! Can't wait to hear your thoughts and feedback!! Make sure and post them on here!
