We First 5: 4 Ways to Give More Meaning to 4th of July

1. Green Your Burgers
Enjoy the grill this holiday weekend while forgoing the greenhouse emissions that come with traditional beef patties. Developed by a team of elite athletes and scientists, try the Beyond Meat burger that’s redesigning the future of protein.

2. Build Your Music
Beyond great food and drinks, every great 4th of July celebration must have a great soundtrack – and Bose’s new buildable speaker brings a sense of learning to the party. Coined the Speaker Cube, it’s the first project born out of BoseBuild, a new department dedicated towards creating innovative and educational products for kids.

3. Hold Your Waste
Though this weekend’s celebrations traditionally make use of Styrofoam plates and plastic utensils – leading to mounds of unrecyclable, toxic waste – there is an alternative. From cups and trays, to straws and spoons, World Centric offers biodegradable, plant-based options for a more sustainable feast.

4. Clean Your Shores
For a different kind of after-party, why not join up with the Surfrider Foundation on July 5th for their annual beach cleanup following all the busy holiday festivities? It all starts at 8 am and goes till 11pm. More info at Surfrider – all volunteers are welcome!

5. Oh Canada
In advance of celebrating Independence Day, We First will also be recognizing the homeland of one of our team members – Canada Day on July 1st. If you’re also a Canuck abroad, find a festivity near you to celebrate the day!
