Earth-Friendly Friday - GO GREEN - the Irish way

St. Patrick's Day: it's the ECO-Warrior’s Favorite Holiday what with the “Wearing Of The Green" this celebration can take on more significance than ever today.

And, what better way to celebrate ECO-progess than with a holiday that screams green?

Here are a few ways to help you celebrate in an earth-friendly way:

Serve green mashed potatoes for dinner – it’s fun and makes the day unusual. Just add a few drops of green food coloring to your mashed potatoes and stir it up ;)

Buy organic green beer. Beer manufacturers :are producing a broad assortment of brews with ingredients that meet organic guidelines and standards.

Wear the Green (organics) proudly. It’s easier than ever before to find quality organic clothing.

Go vegetarian with your Irish cooking, cutting back on meat consumption for a day. It’s an earth-friendly option. The average cattle ranch can produce as much sewage runoff as a small city. Check out a meat-free version Of Irish Vegetable Stew.

Plant something green this weekend, like Irish Bells.

Do some good for Ireland: Find an Irish charity and lend them a hand.
