St. Patrick’s Day is coming up Tuesday, March 17, so we are here to help you plan for your big green day celebration! 1)      Eat Green: Make your own green homemade dye instead of using artificial food coloring.  Many artificial dyes come from petroleum, so make your own using spinach powder, wheat grass juice, spinach juice, parsley juice, or parsley powder. 2)      Drink Green: Every St. Patrick’s Day, more than 13 million pints of Guinness is consumed.  Do your part and recycle any bottles or cans, or choose draft over bottles to conserve more.  Better yet, choose an eco-friendly beer such as Fat Tire beer, which we happen to serve onboard! 3)      Celebrate Green: If you plan to attend a local party or event, look for planet friendly items such as green decorations, cups, and more! Green Party Goods offers eco-friendly party supplies and gifts. 4)      Kid-Friendly Green Crafts: Recycle those extra wine corks you have around the house and create shamrocks. Glue together three or four wine corks, dip in green paint, and happy stamping!  Still have green tissue paper from Christmas?  Use the tissue to create a shamrock on paper.
