All You Entertainers Out There…

For all you entertainers out there I want to say that it is possible to have a garbage free party!  As I mentioned in my last post, Mike and I had a party over the weekend for some of our family. We had a group of 55 people and the party was complete with food and drinks.
I set up a blue bin, grey bin, a few beer cases for empties and a green bin for organics.
And the result:

Yes I did have to rummage through the first bag but once I yelled out to the party where to put everything, it was smooth sailing.
What we used - Biodegradable paper plates (not the flimsy thin ones), plastic forks and knifes, plastic cups, paper napkins and the rest was all reusable serving dishes.
Your next party, just think what you can do to eliminate even one garbage bag and it will get easier and easier.


  1. ....or you could have supported a local rent-all business, got plates glasses and silverware and had only a quarter of the trash. Call it what you want -- recycling is still garbage. :-)

    1. Hi Angie,
      You make a good point and one we may consider for other parties. However, this blog is about inspiring others to take small steps towards living green in their everyday lives. Thanks for reading and if you have any other ideas to get people living green, feel free to share them.
