We love watching movies here at Hotel Felix and are very much looking forward to The Oscars this Sunday. Whether you’re catching it on the couch or throwing a viewing bash with your buds we have some great entertaining tips to green up your night:
-Consider purchasing your party food and supplies from a locally-owned grocer (if you’re in Chicago, we love Green Grocer Chicago, Goddess & The Grocer and Southport Grocery)
-If you aren’t able to buy your items from a local grocer, buy organic when possible
-Do you have a stockpile of old wine corks? Recycle them for the party. (Carefully) cut a slice halfway down the corkscrew and insert a piece of paper that serves as a placeholder or describes the food you’re serving.
-Ideally use reusable plates, serving ware, cups and utensils but if you have a very large group that might not be possible. In that case we recommend Whole Foods’ 365 store brand – they have sturdy plates, cups, etc. that look like paper but are actually made from renewable and biodegradable sugar cane.
-We hope this one is a no-brainer but recycle your rubbish from the night’s festivities. If you’re unsure whether something is recyclable, check the container’s label. Every little bit helps!
Last but not least, have fun celebrating Hollywood’s biggest night!
