Green Your Fourth of July Party

Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays. Food, family and fireworks…what could be better? This year, my eco-conscious best friend from California is visiting for the fourth, and I can’t wait to show her the greener me!

Here are the great ways I've found to have greener Independence Day party:


• Shop local. Search Local Harvest to find home-grown produce and locally raised meat. In Lawrence, Kansas, I love to visit this great restaurant, Local Burger, that sells frozen veggie burgers and grass-fed buffalo burgers to grill at home. My best friend is a vegetarian, so she’ll be glad to have a delicious option of her own.

• Buying condiments? Opt for glass containers over plastic. Look for organic, high fructose corn syrup-free options, too.

• Make a fruit basket from a watermelon. If you need help creating the basket shape, check out this how-to video. My mom is an expert at these. She uses a melon baller for cantaloupe, honeydew and watermelon to give the fruit basket a more whimsical look. Add blueberries, strawberries, grapes and pineapple for a colorful fruit salad.
