Green your Holiday Party: Eco-Friendly Tips for the Season

resolutionsIt’s that time of the year for hosting your annual holiday party, and you’ve decided to try to make it more eco-friendly. If you want to throw a successful and enjoyable party, but also make less of an impact on the earth, here are some suggestions for ways to do so.

Invitations : Evite.com has an easy to use website that allows you to create invitations that are then sent by email. It offers online RSVP options and other party management features.

Dinnerware : One of the easiest way to keep your party green is to use reusable dinnerware. Your holiday table can be green and sustainable by using dishes like these from Noritake . Choose from one of their holiday patterns or something from their stylish everyday collection. Also check their options for reusable glassware that would also make a lovely way to serve holidays drinks to your guests.

Lighting : Candles do create a certain celebratory atmosphere during this time, but opt for healthier versions of candles. Regular candles made from paraffin can emit dangerous toxins into the air while they are burning. Soy, beeswax and LED candles are a more earth-friendly and sustainable choice for your lighting options. If your party will be in the evening outdoors, solar lights are another ine...
