“Nationwide, the estimated 60 million barbecues held on the Fourth of July alone consume enough energy in the form of charcoal, lighter fluid, gas, and electricity to power 20,000 households for a year. That one day of fun, food, and celebration, says Tristram West, a research scientist with the U.S. Department of Energy, burns the equivalent of 2,300 acres of forest and releases 225,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide.”
Eco Friendly Parties Founder, Monica Sanchez says: “Independence Day is a celebration of and pride in the U.S. - we celebrate it and we party! However, the impact on the environment is as big as the celebration. Planning parties online can offset this impact. This is why we are inviting 60 million of people to plan their parties online and send electronic invitations instead of paper invitations so we can, together, offset 16% of the burned acres from forest.
Going further in the party planning process we can offset much more following simple eco-friendly guidelines. Going green with the Grill! There are Solar Grills, Hybrid Grills, Gas Grills and other eco-friendlier options that charcoal. We can also offer an Organic Menu with our summer barbecues. Organic veggies or great grass feed steaks are great choices with a positive impact for the environment, for your health and for the support of local farmers. We can minimizing waste by choosing decorative elements or tableware that are reusable, edible, recycled, biodegradable, or compostable can also help the environment. Finally, do not forget to use recycled bins that are visible to your guest!
