You don’t even have to frame this one as an eco-option. If everyone takes the train or bus or even shares a cab to your party, there’s no need to have a designated driver!
When you send out invitations, encourage your guests to take transit, if possible. If you live near a bus or train station, you might even include transit directions to make this a more accessible option.
If folks can’t take public transportation, you can also suggest that they share a taxi rather than drive alone. They’ll be safer and more able to cut loose if they don’t have to worry about driving, and you’ll be helping them cut emissions at the same time!
Do you guys have any eco-friendly New Year’s party ideas that I missed? Share away in the comments!
