The countdown to Super Bowl Sunday begins. Are you ready for some football? Plus, check out the latest articles and comments posted in Live Green.

Planning a Super Bowl bash this Sunday? Don't forget the chips, dip AND your eco-footprint!

Like many of you, I'll be hosting a little gathering this weekend, so I pulled together a few simple tips to help green your Super Bowl viewing party.

Game Day Nosh
Pizza is always a popular Super Bowl party option, but did you know those oily boxes aren't recyclable? Avoid the waste and try making your own. I promise, it's easy!

Plus, if you happen to have a few unglazed floor tiles leftover from a recent renovation project, you've got yourself an awesome upcycled pizza stone!

For those of you making chili like I am, serving it in a sturdy, reusable bowl is a must! Treat your guests to the good china. By using reusable dishes you'll save trees, waste, and impress your friends, too!

Beyond Recycling
Finally, think beyond plastics and cardboard recycling this coming Sunday. If you decide to upgrade to a big screen, donate your old TV. If you can't find a new home for the old tube, consider recycling it to keep lead, mercury, and other e-waste out of the landfill.

Besides composting, I love traveling, yoga, exploring new flavors, supporting local farms, and cooking for friends at my home in Brooklyn.

    Cooking vegetables and compost their skins after peeling them.
    Wash our ziplock plastic and reused them.
    Wash used glass jars and use it for our sugar , candies etc.

    I keep 2 trash cans in the kitchen. One for wet (trash) & one for dry (mostly recycle). This makes it easy for me to sort things!
