It’s that time of the year again! Delicious, home-cooked turkey will soon be hitting the dining room table, shoppers will start lining up for Black Friday purchases, and most importantly, families and loved ones will come together to reflect on all of the things we have to be thankful for, and how we can better appreciate the things we sometimes take for granted.
For our team, we certainly have a long list of things to be thankful for this year – The Refinishing Touch celebrated its 35 year anniversary, expanded internationally to better service our clients in Canada, and continued to successfully provide hospitality, government and higher education industries with sustainable furniture asset management services.
As you prepare all of the Thanksgiving fixings for later today, we wanted to leave you with some tips for a more sustainable, and just as satisfying, Thanksgiving:
- Decorate this year’s holiday centerpiece with everyday materials found in nature, including pinecones, dried leaves and berries
- Buy gallons of water or, better yet, serve tap to reduce the amount of plastic bottle consumption at your celebration
- Save Thanksgiving Day leftovers to avoid food waste; be creative and reinvent leftover turkey recipes
On behalf of The Refinishing Touch family, we wish you a happy, healthy and safe Thanksgiving!
