Green Your Holiday Party: Drinks
Dreaming of a green Christmas? This week we'll show you ways to make your Hanukkah, Christmas, or Kwanzaa party eco-friendly, from using the Sunday comics to wrap your gifts to buying LED holiday lights.
Tip #1: Serve Green Drinks
Studies suggest that warm drinks promote good feelings, so turn up the cheer with homemade eggnog or vegan eggnog. Give premixed hot chocolate with fair trade cocoa powder and marshmallows in mason jars as a party favor. Scrap the gift wrap entirely and give gifts in reusable tote bags.
