Green Gatherings: Go Paperless

Use cloth napkins Expecting guests? This week we'll offer tips for green celebrations.

Tip #1:  Skip the Paper

Make your group gatherings tree-friendly by avoiding paper products. Send invitations electronically using Evite. Create a festive mood by setting the table with the good china and the cloth napkins. If you don't have a complete dinner set, have fun with mix-and-match decor by borrowing plates from friends or finding used dinnerware through Freecycle.

Share your tips: How do you reuse, reduce, and recycle when you're hosting a party?
