    How many of you have started getting requests for green events?  What are you doing to go in that direction?
     

    Some have started buying from local farmers

    buying paper products that are post-consumer or compostable, corn based cups & flatware

    finger foods instead of plates/flatware

    using plates, real silverware....research has said the impact is about the same as compostable paper

    menus that are made of more vegetation than meats

    recycling oil

    What's been your experience?

    I'm a newbie here. I stumbled upon this thread and found it worth discussing. Its a nobel idea of contributing to protect earth through our daily activities. There is an urgent need for us to protect our environment in every possible way. Keep up the good work./img/vbsmilies/smilies/peace.gif
