GREEN OUTDOOR GATHERINGS WITH TIPS FROM WASTE MANAGEMENT OF NORTH COUNTY
As temperatures rise and gatherings around the grill or at the beach with friends and family to celebrate under the sun take off, Waste Management of North County offers five easy-to-follow green tips to make outdoor entertaining season more sustainable.
Whether celebrating a college graduation, Father’s Day out in the backyard with a barbeque or any other special occasion out on the beach, there is a lot that we can do to protect the environment while entertaining outdoors. By adding a few eco-friendly practices to our gatherings, we can all do our part to reduce waste as we enjoy the beauty of the season.
KEEP OUTDOOR GATHERINGS SUSTAINABLE WITH THESE HELPFUL TIPS FROM WASTE MANAGEMENT:
We are committed to achieving the City’s Zero Waste Goals and keeping Oceanside clean and beautiful. This summer replace the use of plastic water bottles with reusable and refillable thermoses and containers. If plastic bottles cannot be avoided, we encourage you to find one of the many recycling containers placed around the beach, harbor and downtown areas to keep plastic bottles out of the landfills and, more importantly, out of the ocean. Every year, more and more plastic items are finding their way into the ocean. At the rate we are currently at, by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. Even the smallest of efforts from everyone in your community can create great change worldwide.
