Have a Green Memorial Day!

Here’s some useful Green tips I got from Grist.org on green grilling:

Charcoal or Gas??….

“Gas. Burning charcoal gives off more nasty particulates and chemicals. And if you’re carnivorous, you’re doubly culpable: cooking beef can be worse for air quality than the charcoal itself. Burnt cow gives off that particulate matter we’ve talked about so often — the stuff that causes respiratory problems, and may have some carcinogenic properties as well. Choose gas if you can, and minimize smoke and heat if you can’t”- Umbra

Happy Memorial Day!

Stay Informed! Go Green!
