With a few tweaks, this Thanksgiving can be a kinder one to our shared Earth. Visit your farmers market for side dish ingredients, from squash to potatoes to fresh green beans, and maybe even a heritage turkey. Instead of boxed stuffing, start cubing and drying bread crusts now. Move toward zero waste by sizing your menu to your ability to use up leftovers. Instead of a disposable roaster, check at the thrift store for one, or query friends for one to borrow. While at the thrift store, look for autumn decor, special serving dishes, and extra cloth napkins. Local, reuse, and no waste are simple principles all can live by.
