I am convinced that all of us do our little part in whatever small or big way to be environmentally conscious a.k.a GREEN. But every so often we fall into the trap of “buying green” versus “acting green”. I have. It didn’t require much thought to switch over to paper towels and toilet paper that are made from post-consumer content.

I’ve been hosting the annual Hinduja Diwali (Hindu New Year) Party with family and close friends for years now, albeit there was a dry 2-year period due to personal circumstances. This year I decided to revive it, but in a less wasteful way. Now mind you, I am a rookie at living a sustainable lifestyle so I wasn’t particularly successful at throwing a 100% eco-friendly party, primarily because I didn’t think of alternatives till two days prior to the party. But I came up with these 5 easy ways to host a sustainable party that I believe anyone can easily follow without breaking the bank.
Okay so, I’m drinking the “Go-Green” cool-aid. And I’m not ashamed to admit that. After all, it is the “cool” thing to do – green is everywhere these days — in the news, politics, fashion, and even technology. You can hardly escape it. But with a million messages and ideas coming at us from all sides, it is easy to get caught up in the mundane activities of going green – switching to organic foods, layering up instead of increasing the thermostat, recycling blindly — without thinking about the big picture of how your actions stack up. In this post I hope to provide some insight on Why To Live a Sustainable Lifestyle?, instead of How?
