Green Your Activism: Host a Party


It’s officially Climate Week, so in the spirit of being environmentally proactive, we’re providing tips about how to take Earth matters into your own hands. In case you feel discouraged that you can’t do enough, remember Gandhi’s words: “Almost everything you do will seem insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.”

Tip #3: Throw a Bash

Who says that doing good work can’t be fun? In fact, activist work is meant to be social. There are many ways to bring buds together in the name of positive progress. One idea is to pick a worthy environmental nonprofit, as well as an eco-aware bar or restaurant, and host a fundraiser there, with proceeds going to your chosen charity.

Another is to host (or attend) a relevant house party, like the Sierra Club’s Party for Parks, an event playing out in homes across the country during which attendees get a sneak peek of The National Parks: America's Best Idea, then take action to help wildlife.
