Choose eco-friendly materials for your decorations.

Sustainable tailgating is all the rage these days, and for good reason. By choosing eco-friendly materials for your decorations, you can help reduce your environmental impact and show your support for sustainable practices. One easy way to do this is to purchase reusable or biodegradable party supplies. Reusable plates, cups, and utensils can be washed and used again, while biodegradable items will break down naturally over time. You can also decorate with recyclable materials such as paper banners or streamers made from recycled paper. Sustainable tailgating means serving up delicious dishes made with locally sourced, seasonal ingredients.

Use solar power to run your electronics.

Solar power is a clean and renewable energy source, making it the perfect choice for powering your tailgating party. Charge up a solar battery pack before the big game and use it to keep your phones, laptops, and other electronics charged throughout the day. You’ll never have to worry about running out of power, and you’ll be doing your part to help the environment.

Pack waste-free snacks.

When packing snacks for your tailgate party, opt for waste-free options that won’t create any trash. This could mean bringing along whole fruits and vegetables instead of packaged snacks or making your own trail mix with reusable containers. If you do need to bring along packaged snacks, be sure to choose items that are made from sustainable materials and can be easily recycled or composted. By packing waste-free snacks, you’ll help reduce the amount of trash produced at your tailgate party and you’ll have some healthy options to munch on as well.

Clean up after yourself

Tailgating is all about having fun and enjoying the game, but it’s important to clean up after yourselves when the party’s over. Be sure to collect all trash and recycle or compost any recyclable materials. If you’ve used solar power to run your electronics, be sure to disconnect and pack up your solar battery pack so it’s ready to use again next time. And don’t forget to pack up any reusable party supplies so you can use them again next time! By taking these simple steps, you’ll help keep your tailgate party sustainable, and you’ll be sure to have a blast doing it.

Bring along a cooler filled with fresh fruits and vegetables.

If you’re thinking about bringing a cooler to your next tailgate party, consider using solar power to keep your food and drinks cold. Solar coolers are an eco-friendly way to tailgate, and they’re becoming more popular as people look for ways to reduce their environmental impact. If you’re not familiar with solar coolers, they work by using solar panels to convert sunlight into electricity, which is used to power a small refrigeration unit. Solar coolers are a great option for tailgaters because they’re emissions-free and portable, so you can take them with you wherever you go. And since they rely on solar power, solar coolers are a sustainable way to keep your food and drinks cold at your next tailgate.

Recycle cans and bottles after the game is over.

Recycling cans and bottles after the game is over is another way to be sustainable at your next tailgate. According to the EPA, the average American throws away about 4.5 pounds of trash every day. And while some of that trash may be unavoidable, recycling those empty beer cans and soda bottles is an easy way to reduce your impact on the environment. 

So how do you recycle at your tailgate? The answer is simple: bring a few extra garbage bags and designate one bag for recyclables. Once the game is over and it’s time to clean up, simply sort the cans and bottles into the designated bag. Then, when you get home, simply recycle the bag along with your other recyclables. 

So, there you have it – the ultimate guide to having a sustainable and eco-friendly tailgate. We hope you’ll put these tips into practice for your next game day get together.
