Let’s face it: a lot of us really love Halloween, but are a bit too old to trick-or-treat. But there’s another solution: have a party! And make it a green one. Put to use all of the other tips we’ve shared, and you’ll have the makings of an eco-friendly fiesta. 

Will your guests be interested in some ‘green’ drinks? Try some of these eco-friendly cocktails, which use beverages with natural ingredients, or benefit conservation organizations. Check out the Lynchburg Lemonade and Hot Tennessee Toddy, which use Jack Daniel’s and contribute to our tree-planting program, Global ReLeaf. 

Don't forget our earlier tips for your festivities! 
Since you’ll be serving them to friends instead of handing them out to strangers, there’s no need for prepackaged, individually wrapped treats. Make your own, using local produce or organic products. 
Decorate with natural elements, or reuse items you can find around the house. 
Instead of regular lights, set the spooky mood with candles, homemade lanterns, or LED lights. 
If it’s a costume party, create your own using household materials, your own clothes, or items from a thrift store.
