What is an Eco-Friendly Party?
One of the biggest party trends happening right now are Eco-friendly parties. More than ever people are realizing it’s important to take a step back and look at their environmental footprint. We are aware of the impact of single use plastics and are working towards reducing our footprint. We are excited to be working with suppliers that have reduced their packaging and are transitioning away from plastic goods.
We have a wide range of reusable products and eco-friendly options. Almost all of our decor items can be reused and most party supplies are made from paper which means they can be recycled. Even our plastic cutlery can be recycled...it just needs to get into the recycle bin instead of the trash. These are all big steps towards reducing our footprint. Take a look below at some of our favourite Eco-friendly products...
One of our favourite suppliers, Talking Tables, breaks down some of the common terms. They came out with this amazing list to help us keep it all straight.
Here are some key definitions you might find useful:
