Welcome 2012 By Having A Green New Year’s Eve Party!

December 28, 2011

Ring in the New Year with a resolution to help protect the environment and reduce your carbon footprint. If you are planning on having a New year’s Eve party, make it an eco-friendly occasion with invitations, decorations and food.

Create New Year’s Eve party invitations on the computer and send them via email instead of creating and mailing paper cards.

If using disposable tableware, buy paper goods created with recycled content instead of non-biodegradable plastic.

Decorate with items you’ve created or that you already have on hand. Create edible centerpieces out of colorful fruit skewers or simply use pretty potted plants that you can let your guests take home as party favors. Use paper punches to turn old wrapping paper, greeting cards or magazines into confetti for the countdown at midnight.

Save electricity by using organic beeswax candles instead of turning on extra lights. Although they won’t be powerful enough to light an entire room, use them to create atmosphere on the patio or illuminate the powder room, for example.

Serve snacks created with organic foods like locally grown vegetables. Instead of imported cheese, opt for domestic artisan cheeses. If you’re using convenience foods, organic frozen quiches and dips are also available in regular grocery stores. You can even find organic wines and other drinks to toast after the ball drops in Times Square.
