Tips To Make Your New Year's Party A Green One

While everyone is making plans for how they are celebrating New Year's, consider this: We are creating more waste today than ever before. But little contributions in your life can help maintain the planet we all call home. Start living a greener lifestyle at your New Year’s Eve celebration this week! Living a greener lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to change everything in your life. A small change can literally make a world of difference.

At Wheels For Wishes, we take living a green lifestyle seriously. By taking your new, old or unwanted vehicles and recycling them, we not only help the planet, but also help the children of Make-A-Wish. A donation to Wheels For Wishes can help children in Austin, Spokane, Columbus and throughout the United States. The proceeds from every donated vehicle benefit Make-A-Wish and help wishes come true! Here are some tips for making your New Year’s Eve party green:

Put The Plastic Back On The Shelf

Yes, plastic cups and plates are easier to clean up after the party. They are also cheaper and if one breaks it won’t break your budget, but that is where their benefits end. Taking some extra time to clean cups after a party will help to reduce waste and keep the planet in tip-top shape. If you are looking for some green-friendly and disposable items, try using eco-disposable items. These kinds of items are safe to use for food and will help to reduce waste, since they are biodegradable. You can find them online or in many green-friendly stores across the United States.

Buy Organic And Local Food And Drinks

Buying organic and local food is great for the environment. Not only is organic food better for you, but without all of those preservatives and artificial flavors it is easier for the environment to handle as well. Local food should be a year-round practice. Local food doesn’t have to be shipped across the country to reach your table, which saves in gasoline and helps to keep the planet clean. Buying local also supports your local economy, which will in turn help you in whatever business you do!

Recycle To Make Decorations

Confetti is a fun addition to any New Year’s Eve party. If you are considering having confetti at your party, here is a great tip that will help reduce waste: Make your own confetti out of old magazines and newspapers! It might be a little bit more time-consuming, but this practice will save you money and will reduce waste – since you won’t be purchasing bits of paper that will only be used for a short period of time before you vacuum them up.

Resolve To Live Greener

After you’ve puckered up using your organic lip balm and had your midnight kiss, the world will still be spinning and you can maintain your new green lifestyle. Make a resolution to have a greener 2015. You can start by donating your vehicle to Wheels For Wishes! If your vehicle isn’t running as well as you’d like, you want to purchase a vehicle with better gas mileage, or you don’t need your car, Wheels For Wishes is the perfect solution. We will pick up or tow away your vehicle for free, and use the proceeds from auctioning off or recycling your vehicle to benefit Make-A-Wish.

The donation process is easy. All you need to do is call us at 1-877-431-9474 or fill out the simple donation form online. That is all it takes to make a difference in the life of a child in your community. Automobile recycling is one of the largest industries in the United States and one of the easiest ways to help maintain the environment. Recycling vehicles could provide enough steel to produce almost 13 million new automobiles and car production recycling also provides 46,000 jobs here in the United States. With 26 cars being recycled every minute, there are plenty of cars that could be making a difference in your neighborhood. Make the call and make your donation today! Now is the perfect time to begin living a more eco-friendly life.
