St. Patrick’s Day is all about green. Wearing green, decorating with green, even drinking green beer! Here are a few eco-friendly tips to really ‘go green’ for the holiday.
St. Patrick’s Day origins
St. Patrick’s Day began as a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland. Over time the holiday has become an international festival celebrating Irish culture with parades, dancing, special foods, drinks and a whole lot of green.
Eat more veggies
Try a veggie-centered meal that is healthy, delicious and in the spirit of the holiday. Substituting meat for vegetables means you’ll really be going green.
Reduce your waste
Save leftovers with our CLOVER™ collection. Inspired by four leaf clovers, the CLOVER™ lid gives a dash of color to your dishes and brightens up your spring salads and dishes! Available in various sizes, these lids can also be paired with the CLOVER™ drink covers and bottle stoppers.
Drink local brews
If you’re going to enjoy a few beers this holiday, think local when you buy. The craft brewery movement is booming so it’s easy to seek out a local brewery and bring home a growler. If you’re going to be hitting the town, then ask for a local draught. You’ll be supporting your local economy.
Leave the car at home
Save yourself the price of gas and parking by walking or cycling to the St. Patrick’s parade. You’ll also be reducing your carbon footprint. If the parade is a too far, consider public transportation instead.
