For two alternating colours I normally do something like this:

$use_col = "#00FF00";

While (some = condition)
  echo "using $use_col";
  if ($use_col == "#00FF00")
    $use_col = "#0000FF";
  } else {
    $use_col = "#00FF00";

Basically, set a colour to use, then in your while loop you see if it is
one of the colour, if it is change it to the other.  If it isn't the
colour you tested for then it's already the other colour so change it
