Celebrate Maytime festivities in an environment conscious way

Fiesta have always been known for being wasteful if not in time, then at least in resources. As such, Eco-Waste, a coalition of environmental organizations came up with a "to do list" and guidelines for everyone during this festive time. Here are some of their suggestions for an eco-friendly fiesta.

  • Buy condiments in bulk and store in re-usable bottles. It's not only cheaper but will make old bottles and containers useful again.

  • Adopt a no to plastic bags and styrofoam policy. In this regard, using plastic, re-usable containers may be a good idea. Since higher-end plastic containers are expensive, try the more affordable ones that can be bought in supermarkets. They are cheaper and visitors who wish to take home some of the dishes will find them handy as well.

  • In need of buntings an streamers? Try using cloth canvas, coco cloth and tafetta. PVC coated tarpaulin in streamers is less eco-friendly. Also, regarding the banderitas, the use of colorful Japanese paper may also be resorted to, since its not only traditional but can even be a communal activity.

  • In lieu of plastic flowers and pesticide-laden flowers, locally-grown flowers and plant leaves grown in the community may be used instead. The key to this suggestion is creativity since vari-colored leaves can now be used in lieu of blooms.
