Say goodbye to summer by throwing the best bash.
Long weekends tend to be a great time to host a party. Friends, family, and neighbors tend to have an extra day off from work or school, meaning that people are available for a relaxing get-together. As summer comes to an end, having a last big party outside can feel like an awesome close to the season. But, when you start planning your labor day party, however, you might not be thinking about how it could impact your environment.
Yes, we’re talking about an Eco-Friendly Labor Day party.
To make your Labor Day planning a little easier, Eco Party Warehouse has compiled a list of our favorites essentials for a summer party – but not just any essentials, the eco-friendly ones!
No one wants to sit there and wash dishes after throwing a party, so it seems like a logical choice to just go pick up some paper plates at the store and throw it all in the garbage when you're done. Not so fast though. Whether it’s paper, foam, or plastic, that we choose - it seems that we are always losing the battle for the environment. So what other options do we have? Sugarcane! Yep, you heard me right. Sugarcane is a fast-growing, sustainable source of fibers that can be used to make what would usually be “paper” plates. And these fabulous sugarcane plates from Eco Party Warehouse will not only ensure that you’ve got plenty to go around but at only $58.99, you will get 500 pieces.
These utensils are an environmentally-friendly alternative to plastic and are compostable, which makes them a much better choice for consumers that care about the earth. They’re completely organic and smooth, with no coatings, bleach, or dye. Each knife, spoon, and fork feels as comfortable to eat off of as any plastic utensil and as sturdy as metal utensils.
Parties should practically come with a side of napkins, but all those paper napkins get wasted and end up in the landfill. So compostable napkins are the logical choice here – Caboo Tree-Free Bamboo Paper Napkins are a combination of bamboo and sugarcane, which makes them both strong and soft.
Parties always need to look pretty – but, unfortunately, most decorations end up being landfill fillers and animal killers. Nobody wants that. So if you’re throwing a party and are on the hunt for decorations, consider eco-friendly glitter, flowers leave as confetti, or try making some decorations out of something repurposed yourself.
