4 – Wear true green clothes

Not only the color should be green, but your clothes should also be eco-friendly, which is great for the environment. Clothing made from high-quality, sustainable materials is less likely to irritate your skin than chemical-laden materials. Starting a “green clothing” trend is easy since even mass-market brands have started to make their own organic and vegan clothing lines.

5 – Get real green accessories

Reuse to be green. Find your St Patrick’s Day accessories at thrift stores and other places where used goods are sold. It’s a great way to save money and the planet!

6 – Eat true green food

Start by buying local with foods that are in season. Trying to consume less meat to help reduce your carbon footprint on the environment is also a great way to be greener. Last, but not least, you can recycle your food by turning it into compost for your garden. So many ways to eat green!

7 – Use green dye that is truly green

Dye your food and beverages green using eco-friendly, natural food coloring that you can make from spinach or sap. Store-bought food coloring and dyes often include chemicals that are harmful to you and the environment.

8 – Drink green

Unfortunately, traditional hops drinks are made using harmful pesticides. Instead, you can try vegan options like Bulmers Pear Cider and Krombacher Pils or vegetarian options like Harp Irish Lager.
