You may be hosting a large function during the holiday season, whether it's a dinner party or a festive event with lots of food. Since this is the time of year when food waste can quickly end up in landfills, consider allowing guests to take home leftovers. You can purchase paper takeout containers yourself that guests can fill and take with them, or encourage guests to bring their own reusable containers. Your local deli or Chinese food restaurant will often sell you a few extra containers if you ask.
