Hello to all you lovely party-goers and eco-warriors!
It’s Marina Wright here, ready to bring some much-needed green sparkle to your festive occasions. The question is, how can we celebrate without deflating the Earth’s party balloon? Just as the best things in life are free, the best parties are plastic-free!
1. Mindful Decorations
Sustainable party decor is no oxymoron. Embrace the charm of homemade bunting, fabric banners and decorations. Alternatively, you can opt for biodegradable options like natural flowers or even creative arrangements of fruits and vegetables. Remember, true creativity thrives within constraints!
2. Food and Drink with Thought
Let’s talk about the heart of the party – the food and drink. Instead of single-use plastic dishes and cutlery, consider renting tableware, or using your own. For drinks, Glass is Class! And it’s not a party without straws, right? Go for paper or bamboo alternatives that are equally fun and far more eco-friendly.
3. Invitations with a Green Touch
In this digital age, e-invites are a brilliant alternative to paper ones. However, if you prefer something tangible, why not try seed paper? It’s biodegradable and sprouts into plants when sown – a gift that keeps on giving!
4. Eco-friendly Party Favours
Send your guests home with eco-friendly party favours that are memorable and meaningful. Potted plants, homemade soap or even a packet of seeds can do the trick.
5. Dispose of Responsibly
Despite all precautions, parties do generate waste. So, when the last guest leaves and you’re faced with the aftermath, remember to separate and recycle responsibly.
The human race is challenged more than ever before to demonstrate our mastery, not over nature but of ourselves.Rachel Carson
So, let’s rise to this challenge, celebrate sustainably, and make every party an ode to our beautiful planet.
With green love and party vibes,
