4th of July Party Ideas

July fourth 2014 spelled out in lit sparklers 4th of July party ideas

The 4th of July is right around the corner! You know we love going green for the holidays. In the past we have celebrated eco-friendly Easter and a Green Passover. Today we’re talking about the elephant in the room, having a Fourth of July that doesn’t harm the environment.Yes, it’s a struggle, but we may have found the answer.

You know the feeling you get when you see heaps of plastic disposable plates, forks, knives, slowly filling up the garbage bag. Recycling ‘disposable’ can be too difficult for most. Each year Americans throw out millions of pounds of plastic and paper cups and plates. Appease your conscience. Start a new tradition with a biodegradable party kit. It’s got everything you need, easy to clean up and it gets shipped right to your door.

Don’t be fooled by the photo below, you’ll probably have to give your kids eco markers to make red white and blue plates.

Is the Super Bowl Going Green?

Super Bowl is Going Green

Imagine the Super Bowl and you see BIG American style partying: thousands of beer cans, tailgaters, huge crowds and a Mardi Gras sized mess when the out-of-towners pack up and go back home. This year the Super Bowl is going green.

The greenest part of the Big Game is no longer the guacamole or the turf on the field. Every year since the early 1990′s the NFL  has been going green at the Super Bowl. This year’s Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium will be the greenest to date. The league will be composting food to use as bio-diesel to run their generators. They are even planting trees to offset the carbon emissions from the event.

Jack Groh, the NFL’s environmental programs director is trying to “stay ahead of the curve.” According to Groh, they try to increase their environmentally friendly practices each year. The biggest concern is keeping MetLife Stadium warm in the middle of a cold north eastern February. To run the generators used to heat the 13 block Super Bowl Boulevard, Groh will be using  Biodiesel made from recycled cooking oil. These generators will help bring power to the masses and keep the event toasty and warm.

Like Westside Environmental, making the world greener is Groh’s passion. Starting in 1994 in Atlanta, his biggest step forward was simply recycling bottles and cans at the Super Bowl. No one really thought about it before Groh got there.

Westside and Groh are constantly going green. For example, according to Groh, thousands of trees have been planted to offset carbon emissions created by the the Super Bowl. You can smell the smog clearing.

There will also be hundreds of recycling bins and compost pales to reduce landfill waste. Thousands of pounds of beer cup plastics and  can metals will be kept out of our landfills because of Groh. He said, “Our primary objective is to see that it doesn’t go to a landfill,”.

It’s great to see an organization that is  common sense solutions to problems we all face every year. Hopefully New Jersey can learn from this and promote environmentally friendly practices like the ones being pioneered by Groh.
