Green Tips

July's Green Tip
Red, White, Blue and Green

Are you throwing a fourth of July party this year? If so, why not celebrate the land of the red, white, and blue by adding some green incentives to your holiday bash! Instead of using paper plates and plastic cups use ceramic dishes that can be washed and reused. Try not to cook with charcoal grills. Instead, use gas and electric grills that are better for the environment. Shop at the local farmers market and buy a wide array of fruits and vegetables for your guests. Finally, instead of having your own personal firework display for the party, have your guests carpool to a firework show in your area. Your guests will love your red, white, blue, and green holiday party!
