How To: Be an Eco-Friendly Host

There's no mistaking that the holiday season is here, and chances are at one point or another, you'll be having people over. When we host guests, we always hope to keep them comfortable—which we assume means stepping outside of our green living parameters. But it doesn't have to! Here are a few ways to be eco-friendly and a good host.

This list over at the Mother Nature Network suggests that your green lifestyle just might rub off on your guests and encourage them to take your green habits home with them—so it's time to shine.

To start, clean up using all-natural cleaning products, showcase your favorite green accessories, make the bed with organic bedding, light all-natural (and handmade if possible) soy candles or bring in natural scents. For more, read the whole list at MNN here, and be sure to leave your own suggestions below!
