Go Green with an Eco-Friendly Party!

Go Green with an Eco-Friendly Party!

These days, it's important to do what's best for the environment. That means buying local produce, and producing as little waste as possible. Help spread the word by having an inspirational "going green" party with symbolic green food ideas and eco-friendly tips courtesy of Recipe4Living!

The term "green" is used twofold in this newsletter. On one hand, we're spreading the word about eco-friendly practices. On the other, we're enjoying a whole bunch of green food that is not only fun and good for you, but can also more easily be bought locally or with little waste! Think green vegetables for going green! Most importantly, just remember to spread the word and be an inspiration to friends and family.

Go Green!

Presentation Pointers:

1. Buy all produce locally, or with the least amount of packaging possible. If buying from a grocery store, choose paper bags instead of plastic!

2. Use all recyclable or non-disposable serving ware. We know it's easier to use plastic or paper cups, but this time, do the dishes!

3. Initiate a discussion with guests on how to incorporate green practices into your daily lives. Come up with different methods as a group and vow to start going green!
