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.
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.
