Green Holiday Gatherings: The Office Grinch?

Office holiday party istock swilmor'Tis the season for calendars filled with parties. This week, we're showing you how to green your holiday gatherings. 

Tip #1: Green your office party.

Every workplace has its own culture when it comes to holiday shindigs. If you're on the party-planning committee, pick your strategy accordingly: An eco-conscious workplace will be primed for an organic or vegetarian menu or a rule that guests come equipped with their own mugs to avoid disposable-cup waste. But if you're finding it difficult to green your office, focus on contributions that'll prove enviros aren't grinches, like making recycled-paper ornaments and decorating the recycling bins to encourage people to toss paper, cans, and bottles in the right places. 

Tip #2: Drink wisely.

Tip #3: Choose eco-candles.

Tip #4: Get online.

Tell us: How do you plan to green your holiday gatherings this year?
