I love the week of 4th of July. It just feels like, well, summer to me.
I’m off to California to speak at the “greenest fair on Earth” at the Marin County Fair right outside of San Francisco. It’s one of those fun old fashioned county fairs with farm booths, pie-eating contests, ferris wheels and cotton candy. I’ll take lots of photos. If you’re in Marin County, come see me on Wednesday, July 2nd at 6PM. I’m giving away a free Simmons Natural Care by Danny Seo mattress!
Anyway, here are some fun eco-entertaining tips from my book “Simply Green Parties” that you can use for your own summer parties this week. First up: lemon scented hand towels.
Just grab some small towels and soak them in ice water with a squeezed lemon. Ring them up, roll them up and serve with a lemon slice on top. They’ll refresh and disinfect at the same time.
For corn on the cob, just grab some twigs from the yard and sharpen them up in a pencil sharpener. Jab, grill, enjoy!
It’s easy to make your own healthy popsicles. You find these molds in the kitchen supply aisle. Just fill it up with a fruity sports drink, insert popsicle sticks and freeze. Full of vitamins and much healthier than regular sugar pops.
