Green Holiday Ideas
Tis the Season....we've been going to a few holiday parties now that December is here and still have a few more on the schedule over the next couple of weeks, as I'm sure many of you can relate to. One of the cool things we're seeing is the "green" shift showing up at these get-togethers. "Zero-waste" parties aren't easy to pull off, but we attended an event over the weekend that made an attempt to achieve just that. Some of the things they did at their eco-holiday gathering were: - e-invitations - No paper napkins (cloth only) - Compostable decor and table settings - Organic wine was served - Carbon offsets as small gift certificates at the end of the night - The sent out an email asking as many people to carpool as could and worked to coordinate the carpooling - They even turned down the heat throughout the party as people arrived (more people, more natural heat produced, less need for the heater to be working overtime) If you can't hit "zero-waste", the goal of being as eco-friendly as possible is a great start. Enjoy the rest of the festive season.
