5 Ways to Green Your New Year’s Eve Party

Are you planning a New Year’s Eve shindig this year? Between food, decor, and transportation, New Year’s parties can add up to a lot of waste, but they don’t have to! With just a bit of planning, you can lower your party’s impact without sacrificing an ounce of fun.

1. Snacks and Drinks

No party would be complete without cocktails and something to nosh on. Hit up your local farmer’s market before planning your snack menu, so that you can base your recipes on what’s seasonal and local. If you can’t find enough local ingredients, go organic!

Drinks can have as much of an impact as food at your party, so stock up on organic booze and mixers. You can add a festive flair with a crock pot full of organic mulled wine or cider to warm up your guests on a chilly evening.
