Embrace the Box
You may already be familiar with Yellow and Blue's Malbec. A red wine made with organic grapes and boxed in environmentally friendly Tetra Paks, which weigh less than traditional glass bottles, thus reducing carbon emissions from their shipping. Oh, and they're super affordable (around $12 for a liter). Low carbon emissions, organic and cheap a triple threat! Instead of red, perhaps you'd like to cool off with a glass of white or rosé during the summer months. Well, you're in luck: They've recently released a fruit-forward white and crisp rosé, and both are perfect for your Fourth of July party.

Serve organic beer this Fourth of July. It's an easy way to slip some sustainability into your meal, and nothing beats cold beer if you're trying to convince some not-so-green friends of the merits of your sustainable lifestyle. Take a look at our list of Organic Beers for Summer.
