New Years Eve Party Essentials For Eco Friendly Entertaining
It’s the most festive time of the year. Friends and family are gathering to celebrate the holidays and reconnect. What would a holiday party be without food and drinks? Not much of a party if you ask us. With holiday gatherings comes lots of trash that gets thrown away. Take a moment to think about all that goes into your trash cans at the end of a long night. There are drink cups, plates, utensils, napkins, food scraps, wrappings and an assortment of other items that are destined for the landfill. When you take a moment to really think about all that you throw away during the holidays, it can feel pretty overwhelming to find areas for improvement. But it doesn’t have to be overwhelming at all.
There are many simple changes you can make to green your holiday entertaining. You can minimize the impact your party might have on the environment by switching to items that are recycled, tree-free compostable or bio degradable. There are lots of options available to help you shrink your footprint. Here are some entertaining suggestions that are eco friendly and wont break the bank.
