Green Gatherings: Transportation Resources

Take public transit Expecting guests? This week we'll offer tips for green celebrations.

Tip # 3: Invite Green Travel

Encourage your guests to minimize their carbon footprint by providing transportation resources in the invitation. Google Maps can help cyclists and pedestrians chart safe routes, or help travelers track down directions for bus and train systems. Make carpool suggestions to partygoers who live near each other. If you're entertaining a tech-savvy crowd, suggest that people try out new ride-sharing applications like Zimride and Carticipate.
