      How to Make the Heart of your Parties 'Plastic-Free'

      Living in harmony with nature is essential to our world nowadays. This should also be the case when it comes to social gatherings and parties too. Unfortunately, people are still widely using disposable tableware and cutlery made of plastic for special occasions, mainly for reasons of convenience. Plastic pollution has become one of the most debatable concerns, as the rapidly increasing production of disposable plastic products overwhelms the world's ability to deal with them. Plastic trash has become so omnipresent and has spread its roots deep into our lives without us realizing its harmful after-effects. The billions of tons of trash end up in the ocean each year, causing water pollution and the extinction of many ocean species.

      That is why Eco Party Warehouse provides the best sustainable and healthier alternative to plastic, helping you enjoy your parties in an eco-friendly way. Eco Party Warehouse manufactures 100% eco-friendly tableware pieces that are biodegradable and compostable and turns into the soil in 90 days, causing no harm to our Earth or its innocent creatures. So whether you are planning an entirely eco-friendly event, wedding reception, or picking out a few sustainable options for your next birthday party, our tableware should be something you consider.
       
       

      Eco Party Warehouse brings you the top 5 tips for a plastic-free party:

       

      Say NO to plastic utensils - Next time when you are buying utensils, opt for wooden or palm leaf ones. This will not only save the environment but also will keep you away from harmful toxins. Additionally, our spoons, knives, and forks have a natural wood-grain finish that makes for an upscale look.

       

      Say NO to plastic dinnerware - Plastic and styrofoam disposable plates are extensively used by hosts. By being heavy-duty, cheap, durable, and always in high demand, most disposable plates contain hazardous chemicals and release dangerous pollutants that could lead to diseases. Thankfully, there are sustainable alternatives to tableware items like plastic disposable plates. Choosing to eco-friendly dinnerware will not only help save the environment and slow climate change but will also help you set really amazing table settings. Plus, switching to eco-friendly plates, bowls, trays, and mini partyware is easier than you might think, and it won't break the bank.

       

      Say NO to aluminum & plastic wrap paper – Aluminium foil keeps your food hot, but it secretes harmful chemicals when comes to contact with hot food. Instead, swap out environmentally friendly alternatives like our microwaveable and freezer-safe bowls, plates, and trays for a fresh, modern, and sustainable storage solution.

       

      Say NO to plastic, paper, or styrofoam cups - Most of us don't have enough glasses for a big party, but we recycle perfectly useful glass jars all the time. Jam jars, pepper jars, peanut butter jars. Clean those cuties out, peel the labels off, and you have some cute party glasses! The fact that they are all different sizes, textures, and colors just will to the charm and helps people remember which glass is theirs!

       

      Say NO to plastic decorations - Keep your decorations minimal – use flowers on tables and bunting instead of balloons or streamers. Cloth banners or large wooden birthday signs can be made at home or purchased online, and be reused for future parties. Also, rugs, cushions, and pallet furniture create cozy and casual settings.

      Hosting a plastic-free party is easier than we think. All we need is some consistency and determination. Eco Party Warehouse cares about you and our planet. Our products are made up of sugarcane bagasse, palm leaf, and birch wood. They are 100 % compostable, biodegradable, and completely eco-friendly, so now with Eco Party Warehouse using non-plastic materials in your party, event, and any occasion will become second nature, and you will enjoy your food fresh and healthy.

      DIY Father's Day Gifts Ideas

      Father's Day - always celebrated on the third Sunday in June is just around the corner, and it is time to start thinking about what you want to give Dad to tell him how loved and valued he is. In honor of the occasion, show Dad appreciation for all he does throughout the year and give him a fantastic homemade gift. A simple do-it-yourself Father's Day gift can put a smile on Dad's face and gives him something to let him know how much he is loved and appreciated all year long! It doesn't have to be extravagant or expensive, as long as the present is something that Dad can always have to remember his Father's Day.

       

      DIY gifts are always extra special, as the maker has put a lot of thought, time, and energy into the idea to make it super personal. It is lovely to receive a handmade gift, even just something small will show him just how much you appreciate him. However, the actual process of making the gift can also be fun! Get the kids involved and let their imaginations run wild.
       
      In need of some gift inspiration? We have put together a few ideas to help you get started:

      - Slideshow -

      This is a great project for older kids who can use the computer for photo sharing. They can gather family photos from vacations and holidays and insert them into a slideshow on the computer that can play as Dad's screensaver. Or, put the special collection of photos together to hook up to a digital picture frame that you give Dad as a gift. Either way, he will love the effort made to put the slideshow together.

       

      - Bake a cake - 

      So you don't think you are a creative person? Something as simple as baking your Dad his favorite cake can be a great place to start. Even if you aren't much of a baker, the majority of basic cake recipes are very simple and should be easy enough to follow. For a festive spin, display your cake on one of our fabulous eco-friendly plates to complete the gift!

       

      - Clockmaking -

      You can make a clock using pretty much anything, but why not use wooden utensils? You just need 12 utensils, a large board, glue, and a clock mechanism. It might take some time to perfect, but it would look great on your dad's 'man cave' wall. 

       

      - Hand or FootPrints -

      Hand or footprints are a great homemade gift idea for Dad that you can do with infants and toddlers. Dad can put the print on display in his office. To make hand or footprints, purchase four blanks, white canvas boards, and non-toxic paint. Select the colors based on the colors in Dad's office. To start, paint the canvas boards so that the background color is in place. Once the background is dry, dip the kids' feet or hands in different color paint, and make prints on the canvas.

       

      - Homemade Card -

      Homemade cards are simple and traditional Father's Day homemade gifts. Card-making is a perfect project for a variety of age groups. Plus, Dad will cherish the thought and meaning behind the card. 

       

      - Book -

      A homemade book is an excellent way for kids to express their appreciation for Dad! To make a homemade book, stack multiple pieces of cardstock, punch three holes in the side, and tie yarn or ribbon through the holes. Glue family photos to the pages and let the kids draw around them and write notes to Dad. Present the book to Dad on Father's Day and show him how much he is loved!

       

      - Family Photo Mug -

      Fill Dad's heart with love every time he fills his mug with coffee or tea. With a custom mug, he will have a collection of favorite memories, like fishing together or exploring a nearby town.

      Why Bagasse is Popular as Tableware

      What is faster to renew than bamboo? More durable than paper? And more sustainable than any other paper alternative on the market? Bagasse! Bagasse is the name for the tableware that is durable, microwave, oven, and freezer-safe, breaks down into nutrient-rich soil, and does not use trees in its production process, presenting a new, greener take on traditional disposable tableware. Stylish, eco-friendly, and strong, sugarcane or bagasse dinnerware is rapidly rising as an excellent eco-friendly option for a wide variety of entertainments.

       Eco-Friendly Properties of Bagasse:

      • Produced as a bi-product from growing sugarcane. 
      • Sustainably sourced with little or no environmental impact.
      • 100% compostable and will break down to compost if left in the natural environment.
      • No additional additives or chemicals are needed to whiten or strengthen it.
      • Quick replenishment of crops, with sugarcane being harvested in a single season.

      What is Bagasse? How is it used to make tableware?

      Bagasse is the pulpy residue that is left over after juice is extracted from sugarcane. It is obtained in large quantities in countries such as Brazil, Vietnam, China, and Thailand, where sugar production is generally high. The fibrous portion becomes a waste product after the juices are separated. This is where the production of tableware takes place. Bagasse that usually ends up in a landfill is recycled or used to make usable and sustainable tableware pieces. Since it is considered a waste product, it requires no additional resources to produce but makes the world's best disposable plates! 

      Why is bagasse being used for the production of tableware?

      The reasons are simple: In comparison with other materials, bagasse is more eco-friendly and sustainable as it can be composed easily. The material has a longer lifespan than other materials and can be used to make perfect biodegradable and compostable plates, bowls, dinnerware sets, and containers. Additionally, tableware made of bagasse is very hygienic.

      The process

      To make the compostable Bagasse dinnerware, the process starts with the repurposed Bagasse material. The material arrives at the manufacturing facility as wet pulp. The wet pulp is then converted to a dry pulpboard after being pressed in a beating tank. After the wet pulp has been converted to a dry pulp board, the substance is mixed with an anti-oil and anti-water agent in a Pulper to make the substance sturdier. Once blended, the mixture is piped into a Preparation Tank and then the molding machines. The molding machines instantaneously press the mixture into the shape of a bowl or plate. The finished bowls and plates are then tested for oil and water resistance. Only after the bowls and plates pass those tests can they be packaged and ready for consumers. 

       

      We are very proud to be one step closer to eliminating waste from landfills. Eco Party Warehouse has a wide variety of compostable and biodegradable tableware pieces from plates, bowls, and trays, to knives, spoons, and forks, which are perfect for hosting special occasions. So hurry up, and try our Bagasse dinnerware today!

      Preparation: Active: 1 hr 15 mins; Total: 2 hrs 15 mins; Yield: 4

       

      Ingredients:

      • 3 cups (not packed) beet pulp (from juicing 1 1/2 pounds beets)
      • 2 cups (not packed) carrot pulp (from juicing 3/4 pound carrots)
      • 4 ounces small white mushrooms, quartered
      • 1/2 cup canned kidney beans, rinsed and drained
      • 2 ounces firm tofu, cut into 1/4-inch dice
      • 1 tablespoon canola oil
      • 1/4 cup cooked barley
      • 3/4 cup (not packed) celery pulp (from juicing 3/4 pound celery ribs)
      • 3 large eggs, beaten
      • 1/2 cup finely chopped roasted almonds
      • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
      • 2 tablespoons plain dry breadcrumbs
      • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
      • 2 tablespoons white miso
      • 1 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce
      • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
      • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
      • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

       

      To finish:

      • Few dashes of Tabasco
      • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
      • 4 hamburger buns, split
      • 2 tablespoons canola oil
      • 4 slices of Swiss cheese
      • Lettuce, sliced tomato, and stone-ground mustard, for serving

       

      Directions:

      Make the burgers:

      Step 1: Preheat the oven to 375°. Spread the beet pulp evenly on a parchment paper-lined rimmed baking sheet. Spread the carrot pulp evenly on a second parchment-lined baking sheet. Roast for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the pulp is dry and browned in spots. Scrape into a bowl and let cool completely. Leave the oven on.

      Step 2: On the rimmed baking sheet, toss the mushrooms with the kidney beans, tofu, and canola oil. Spread the mixture in an even layer and roast for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until browned and dry.

      Step 3: In a food processor, pulse the barley until finely chopped; scrape into a large bowl. Add the mushroom mixture to the processor and pulse until finely chopped; add to the bowl. Add the roasted beet and carrot pulp, the celery pulp, and all of the remaining burger ingredients and mix well. Pack the mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick burgers.

      Finish the burgers:

      Step 4: Heat a grill pan. Spread the butter on the buns and toast cut side down over moderate heat until golden, about 2 minutes. Transfer the buns to a plate.

      Step 5: Brush the grill pan with oil and heat. Add the burgers and cook over moderate heat, turning once, until nicely charred, about 6 minutes. Top each burger with a slice of cheese, cover, and cook until the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes longer. Set the burgers on the buns. Top with lettuce and tomato spread mustard on the top buns, and serve on eco-friendly biodegradable trays or plates.

       

      Notes:

      Don't forget to use only compostable and biodegradable dinnerware and flatware — no plastic or paper waste!

      Top 5 Tips for Eco-Friendly Memorial Day

      Memorial Day - the ultimate celebration of American pride - is just around the corner, and with it comes the plan to gather with family and friends. This is the time to reflect on history and appreciate all those who have fought for our freedom. Memorial Day is also often considered the start of the summer. It's a long weekend, with temperatures warm enough to enjoy time in the backyard, at a park, or on the beach. No matter how you choose to celebrate, you can honor those who have paid the ultimate price for freedom by making your celebrations more sustainable. And don't worry, whether you host a small gathering or a large party, Eco Party Warehouse has some amazing patriotic tips (and products) to make your party sustainable and environment friendly. So get your family, friends, and neighbors together for an old-fashioned party with a new (and green!) twist!  

      Grill -  This Memorial Day tradition is already one of the most environmentally friendly ways to cook. But instead of charcoal, that mixed with sunshine and other pollutants add to ground-level ozone, consider grilling with propane gas, natural gas, or solar energy. Using these alternative sources that present the most eco-friendly way to grill these days reduces air pollution and lessens your impact on the Earth.

        

      Food - Memorial Day is all about hamburgers and hotdogs, corn on the cob, potato salad, and chips, but consider the impact the cheap-and-easy-food has on the environment and your body. A much better option is to shop at a local farmer's market for your Memorial Day celebration. Over the holiday weekend, many local growers will be back selling their fresh produce in your neighborhood. Take this opportunity to teach your children about the importance of buying fresh fruits and vegetables grown nearby. If you are lucky, you can even grab fresh meat from a local farm to support the local farmers and be more eco-friendly with your food options this year.

      Sweets - If you are going to make a family dessert for your Memorial Day, double it. The sweetest way to show your thanks is by giving a homemade treat to the home of an active or fallen soldier. The tasty treats will make for the perfect ending to a perfect weekend! And if you want to make your dessert the star of your Memorial Day get-together and put everyone in a patriotic spirit, creativity display it on our fabulous eco-friendly plates, trays, or bowls.

       

      Tableware - Remember to avoid single-use plates, cutlery, and cups, especially ones made from Styrofoam and plastic. The best option is tableware, flatware, and dinnerware made from completely natural, renewable materials. So get creative with your table settings and switch to Eco Party Warehouse's biodegradable tableware. If you still want more red, white, and blue, simply tie your biodegradable utensils in a red ribbon, and place them on a blue napkin.

      Compost - Compost leftover food scraps and other organic trash. Don't forget the recycling and compost bins around the property - having a goal of a zero-waste party will not only help the Earth but perhaps even educate your guests. It is also easy to do composting in your own backyard - it will save you money and help your yard and garden. 

       

      Have a Great Memorial Day!
