You're already green at heart. So this St Patrick's Day, whether you can claim Irish roots or not, give yourself the go-ahead to celebrate the greenest of the holidays. Here are five fun tips to go a little greener on St Patrick's day: 1.  Use AusPen non-toxic, refillable dry-erase markers to decorate your mirrors or windows with shamrocks, pots of gold, rainbows and Irish kisses! Using AusPen eco-friendly markers in the classroom, boardroom or at home saves on piles of dried up plastic markers from hitting the landfill.Also, AusPen's non-toxic ink protects you from the harmful chemicals used in regular disposable markers. 2.  Alter tradition a little and plan a meat-free Irish stew. Cutting back on meat  consumption is clearly an earth-friendly choice as the average cattle ranch can produce as much sewage runoff as a small city, and irrigation associated with livestock production accounts for around half of all the consumed water in the United States. Try this vegetarian irish stew  from Food.com 3.  Plant some irish moss or clover in your garden now that spring is on its way. This green ground cover will help keep the soil moist and reduce the need for chemically-treated lawn or wood chips. 4.  Rather than hitting the dollar store to purchase cheaply-made plasticized decorations, try simply making homemade cloverly decorations from sites like the Teacher's Guide. 5.  Create some Irish channels on a streaming radio station (Pandora in the US and Slacker in Canada). Try artists' names like: The Chieftans, The Corrs, The Irish Rovers, Van Morrison, The Cranberries, Enya, U2, Black 47, The Irish Tenors, Bob Geldof, and The Pogues. Happy St. Patrick's Day from EcoSmart Products... and may the road rise up to meet you.
