The holiday table is a celebration of abundance. What better place to practice green values for the health of your family and the earth? Some ideas to consider:

Glasses and Dinnerware 

Opt for glass instead of crystal to avoid lead worries. Add extra sparkle with matching or coordinating glass dinnerware, coasters, or trays. Source: And by choosing recycled-glass dishes, you help save precious natural resources.


The Table 

Shopping for a new table? Save trees by seeking out one made from fast-growing bamboo. Safeguard your family’s health with formaldehyde-free glues.
