(NC) BBQ season is officially here.While you’re starting up your grill for summer, consider these three sustainable tips:
1. Go for a greener grill
If you’re considering purchasing a new grill, choose wisely: Electric-powered BBQs eliminate more airborne carbon emissions compared to other fuels. Do your research online to find a grill that’s a great investment for both your family and the planet.
2. Waste not, want not
BBQ cookouts with family and friends seem to require a lot of food – and there’s never a shortage of leftovers. When choosing items to satisfy your guests, consider how to minimize impact on the planet. Look for recyclable or reusable packaging to reduce waste and “upcook” your leftover food with creative recipes.
3. Choose sustainable protein
Did you know that the protein you choose for your BBQ has an impact on the planet? Producers such as Maple Leaf Foods are prioritizing sustainable production, so look out for the carbon zero logo on its range of pork and chicken products to help do more for the planet.
