Couples Negril has a few environmental tips to show you how we reduce our environmental footprint:

Use cloth napkins
Not only are they more durable (one cloth napkin will make it through a lot more BBQ sauce than a paper one!) but ditching disposable napkins will also save plenty of money over the years. It’ll also reduce your trash output, which means less energy is used transporting and processing your waste. Using recyclable paper napkins is good for the planet, but it’s even better to not have anything to recycle in the first place. Plus, cloth napkins make dinner feel oh-so-fancy.

Avoid use of straws if not necessaryGuests are given the option for the use of straw with drinks. They are not automatically given with drinks, only thick/ frozen drinks are served with straws.
