Week 40 challenge | New Year's Eve party tips

Happy (almost) new year Thrifty 50 Challenge peeps! You’ve made it to week 40 of this 50-week challenge. We’re in the home stretch!

This time of year can be a time when many people set out to make changes in their daily habits. The good news? You’ve already been making changes just by being a part of this challenge.

So let’s celebrate this New Year’s Eve, the eco-friendly way!

Here are just a few simple entertaining ideas to help keep this sustainability train rolling into the new year:

  1. Use reusable dinnerware that you can find at your local MCC Thrift shop.
  2. Go zero-waste with your party invitations and send them out electronically.
  3. Reduce food waste by making just enough food for your party guests.

Did you try this challenge? Post a photo of your guests enjoying your eco-friendly meal on social media with the hashtag #thrifty50 and tag us with @MCCThrift. We'd love to see how you're doing!

Until next Wednesday,
Lori Giesbrecht
MCC Thrift
