Eco Green Grilling Tips

Eco Green Grilling Tips

July 27, 2022

 Summer is here and grilling season is in full swing.  Most of us are reaching for the grill rather than turning the oven on. But before you light that match, please allow me to give you some green and eco friendly grilling tips.
  1. Use a charcoal chimney, an electric charcoal starter, or natural lighter fluids to start your fire instead  of  petroleum-based lighter fluids and self-lighting charcoal. 
  1. To eliminate additives in the air and your food, and therefore make a cleaner fire, choosing natural, additive free charcoals, or natural lump charcoal. Charcoal produces more pollution than gas or electric grills. 
  2. Avoid one time plastic cutlery, plates and cups. Instead use melamine, glass or disposable yet compostable bamboo and palm plates and reusable stainless steel cutlery. These can be used over and over again since they are more durable than paper. There are even stainless steel skewers that are super sustainable and lessen waste of the wooden ones.
  3. Keep the grill clean and wash after each use. Grease and food build up causes unnecessary smoke when grilling. 
  4. Use a gas grill instead of a charcoal grill since they are more energy efficient and release less pollutants.
