With the Royal Wedding between HRH Prince William and fiancée Kate Middleton fast approaching, many of you might be sat at the office wondering how to spend yet another long weekend to celebrate. If you are like the rest of England, you are probably already daydreaming about gorging on more food and having a few more drinks away from work!
With over 5,000 formal road closures already arranged during this royal wedding, it has been estimated that 1 million of us will be enjoying a street party over the weekend! Here at Green Rewards, our team is always looking for ways to celebrate without placing more avoidable strain on our environment. With a little bit of thought and consideration, you can also enjoy an eco-friendly royal wedding celebration. ‘How?’, I hear you ask. Well - here are 3 simple tips to get you started!
1/ Cook up a party, go organic:
Invited all your friends and families around for a big celebration? Why not go organic and cook up some treats, and top off the meal with some fair-trade wine? While you’re at it, you can also compost all the odd bits of peels, tea bags and egg boxes to feed your garden as well as your friends and families.
2/ Don’t let it all go to waste:
So you cooked a nice meal, but if you are a lovely chef who cooks like a generous mother, you’ll be faced with an extreme amount of leftovers! Here at Green Rewards, we don’t like unnecessary waste – try and cook moderately and use leftovers for some quick and easy stir-fries the next day. A useful website, LoveFoodHateWaste.com can help you plan your cooking, meals and left over; you’ll save money and help eases pressure on the environment.
3/ Watch DVDs:
Yes, really! Inevitably, there comes a time after dinner when everybody is well watered and fed – now what? Everybody is lounging around, feeling lazy...falling asleep.... Having already watched the whole royal wedding, the last thing you want is to watch yet more news on everything you have already seen in the afternoon. You have shown the children what it means to be patriotic, how about teaching them the importance of looking after our planet? From Planet Earth to An Inconvenient Truth, these educational DVDs can help you make the most of your time with children.
