Mailbag: Environmentally Friendly Tailgating

Posted by Dave On July - 30 - 2008

Even before my interview on WTMD aired this morning I received and email from one of my readers regarding environmentally friendly tailgating. He shared a lot of good ideas that were just too good not to share. I especially appreciated him alerting me to an online store that sells biodegradable plates and cutlery, perfect for tailgating. Here is the email he sent..

Howdy Dave,

Regarding this post:
Listen To My Interview On WTMD 89.7 FM Tomorrow Morning

You said that you will be chatting about tailgating green, I would like to share a few ideas with you:

-This place sells biodegradable plates and utensils.


You have to buy large quantities, but shipping is free.

They have a store on Ebay where they sell smaller quantities:

Trellis Earth Products on eBay

-Around our tailgater, I set up a few of those popup garbage cans, and label one for bottles and cans.

-Instead of bottled water, I purchased one of these:


And will fill it with water and ice for games this year.

I enjoy your site, and I hope you can use these ideas.

Best regards,


Special thanks to Dave Wilson for alerting me to those products and sharing those cool environmentally friendly tailgating ideas. If you have some green tailgating ideas, feel free to email them to me or leave a comment below. We all could use a few tips on making our next tailgate party a little greener.
