Going Green – Throw a Green Party with The Party Goddess

I recently saw this clip on my Twitter Buddy www.twitter.com/thepartygoddess (Marley Majcher) YouTube Channel.

The Going Green concept can be overwhelming, so the alternative Marley has come up with is going “Light Green” for your next party!

When I am creating an event I use the 9 R’s when looking at 1) Budget and 2) The Eco Chic Factor:

Recycle, Reuse, Reclaim, Reinvent, Remake, Redesign, Recraft, Recreate & Reduce!

Shop locally for your produce check out Farmers Markets that are close to home!

Use “eco friendly” party products like bamboo items - check out One Earth Outlet!

Use drink tags for glasses to reduce the amount of glasses that are used during your event. Check out my post on How many glasses will I need?

Check out the Thrift Stores, Antique/Second hand Stores & Discount Stores for event decor bargains that have been used or that you can reuse in the future!
