Here are some ideas from Green Planet Parties to lesson your environmental footprint when hosting a party or event with friends. Have fun hosting a fun, green, successful, eco party of your own!
Birthday Party Supplies
do not need commercialized disposable decorations and tableware. You
know, the matching plates, napkins, tablecloth, wall decoration etc. in
the most recent licensed theme. Every year the children chose the 'theme'. The cost for
the printed, commercial plastic, was overwhelming, and the waste was
awful. Children do not miss this part of the party. They are just as
happy with a pretty or cool fabric... camo or stripes for boys...apples
or flowers for girls. Especially if these decorations can later be
moved into their rooms. Remove the mass produced commercialism from
your child's party, it just isn't needed anymore.
Children do appreciate sustainable, usable, fun goodie bag items. Rather
than a bag full of dollar store plastic items that will break or get
lost, children delight in one great item that was chosen based on
quality. They will remember the party for years to come every time
that item is used or played with.
with any of our carefully chosen goodie bag items, which can be put in
a goodie bag or presented creatively rolled up and tagged with string
and their name, a treat is always appreciated by a child. A lollipop
or special chocolate given with the goodie bag / item is tangible
immediately after receiving a give-away. For busy parents we've also
recently added a line of 'pre-made' loot bags to choose from that are
complete with an organic treat.
ECHOage Your Child's Birthday Party
Fun! Empowering! You must check out ECHOage -
an eco-friendly, charity driven birthday party service where children
learn the value of giving and receiving while celebrating their
birthday. Instead of bringing wrapped gifts, your guests are invited
to contribute, online, with half going to a birthday gift for the
birthday child, and the other half going to the charity the birthday
child has chosen.
