Green Tips

Green Tip #46
Green Holiday Parties

Planning a party this holiday season? Green it up with these tips.

Invites: Save money and resources by sending invites via email or text message.

Decorations: Skip the paper and plastic and decorate with natural items from your yard-evergreens, pinecones, or seasonal houseplants.

Party supplies: Use reusable dishes, utensils and cloth napkins. Rent or borrow items you won’t need more than once, like large punch bowls and chafing dishes.

Food: Avoid waste by thinking conservatively when planning the quantity of food.

Trash: Be sure to recycle all items that are not reusable-like bottles and cans.
