Eco-Friendly Guide for St. Patrick's Day Celebrations

For many, St. Patrick’s Day is a chance to celebrate Irish culture and gather with friends. Green defines and also refers to sustainability. Here are some tips to pair St. Patrick's Day festivities with waste-reduction, environmental-friendly practices.

Conserve decorations

Borrow decorations from friends or family. Or re-use decorations from last year’s party to cut down the amount of waste that will later find its way to a landfill.

Recycle empty bottles and cans

Drinking responsibly also includes recycling. Instead of tossing out empty bottles and cans, take the time to recycle them.

Don’t litter

St. Patrick’s Day parades can generate a huge mess afterwards. Help your local clean-up crew and the environment by throwing away your trash. It’s a small gesture that has a huge impact.  

Reduce food waste

Use leftovers to make new recipes. Here are some great recipes you can try using leftover corned beef: https://www.tasteofhome.com/collection/recipes-to-make-with-corned-beef/

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
