Happy Earth Day!
Thanks so much for joining me today. I will be talking about ways to "green up" your parties, weddings and events. I hope this inspires you to re-think party planning. Even if you already have an eco-friendly way of thinking and living, many people forget or just relax a bit on throwing an eco-friendly party. Maybe we think "well this is a special occasion and we have to throw this really big wonderful party with everything we can think of (I say "we" because I am guilty of this too). But, really, throwing an eco-friendly, fabulous party is not so difficult. After doing my research, I realized it is, really, not that hard and not impossible at all.
You don't have to overwhelm yourself and feel like you have to do everything on this list, however if you fulfill just one of these things you are still reducing your carbon foot print and it is a big step in the right direction.
Make eco-friendly goals for your self and try to keep moving towards this goal a little at a time. You will find in no time that not only is it important for our planet, but if is important for the health of your family.
Keep researching and learning. Knowledge is power, and the more you know the easier it will be for you to move towards your eco-friendly goal. It actually can save you so much money in the long run and give you power over this economic downfall we are in.
