I love that someone is paying attention to eco friendly entertaining! My personal pet peeve is the drinks especially with a house full of teens. They open one, drink half, and then open another. Pitchers are truly a big step in the right direction.

I loved the ideas in this article . . . by incorporating some (or all) of them, we can still enjoy our FUN in the SUN without taking such a toll on the planet.

Pitchers are a great idea, kind of nostalgic really.

I still remember my grandmothers pitchers ~ used to store orange juice and iced water and lemonade.
