Here are few tips to throw a chic eco party:

The first tip is a no-brainer. Do the party outside if at all possible. You’re saving on lighting, you’re saving on energy costs, air conditioner, heating. All those things add up, and suck fuel and energy from the earth and from your pocket. So let’s just start clean with a beautiful outdoor party.

One of my favorite tips is something that I’ve often done at parties which is having potted flowers or potted plants, even herbs or even like a little baby seedling fruit tree as your center pieces. These can be your giveaways so you say, “Thank you so much for coming. Please, take this flower home.” And then the person who comes to your party can plant it in their back yard, or keep it in the pot growing. And it’s really, you know, a sort of very low impact gift. And it’s a low impact centerpiece. It’s a lovely thing to do rather than cut flowers which are often flown from Asia; very far away. A lot of fuel is involved as well as a lot of chemicals and pesticides which you don’t need near your green party.

The other thing is if at all possible, please bring your own china from home. Sometimes, it’s not possible, but if it is possible that’s a great option. If not, that’s fine. There’s amazing super great bio-plastic plates and cups and saucers, and even cutlery made from bio-plastics, which are plant-based plastics. There’s bamboo plates which are great because they’re compostable so you can toss them into the composter when you’re done or just right back into the earth, and they’ll decompose beautifully, rather than plastic which will sit on top of a landfill for 100 years. No reason for that. Just say no to disposables that are not bamboo or a bio-plastic.

Instead of gifts, a donation to your favorite charity. This is just a simple, lovely way to give back. And sometimes, often, you’ll find that you get so many donations for your favorite charity that you never could’ve even afforded to donate that much yourself. So it makes you feel really good, and it makes you feel more involved with causes you’re passionate about. And really, do you need another tea cup or does your kid need another Lego toy that desperately? Not always. So it’s a heartfelt way to give back and be compassionate to the earth and to animals and to the environment.

    I just want to say I am just newbie to blogging and site-building and really enjoyed your web-site. Likely I’m want to bookmark your blog post . You actually have outstanding articles and reviews. Cheers for sharing your website.

  4. I have realized some points through your blog post post. One other thing I would like to convey is that there are many games in the marketplace designed specially for preschool age little ones. They contain pattern identification, colors, family pets, and forms. These normally focus on familiarization as opposed to memorization. This will keep little ones engaged without experiencing like they are learning. Thanks

  5. I am curious to find out what blog platform you have been working with? I’m having some small security problems with my latest blog and I’d like to find something more secure. Do you have any suggestions?

  13. Thanks for expressing your ideas. I might also like to mention that video games have been actually evolving. Modern technology and improvements have made it easier to create authentic and active games. Most of these entertainment games were not that sensible when the concept was first being experimented with. Just like other styles of technological innovation, video games too have had to grow by way of many decades. This itself is testimony on the fast progression of video games.
