Eco-Friendly Enjoyment: Sustainable Party Practices for Earth Lovers

Are you thinking of throwing a party, but are you struggling to relax and enjoy knowing many party classics are bad for our planet? We, of course, love parties! Any occasion to celebrate milestones, connect with friends, and break away from the monotony of our daily routines is welcome. However, we’re also aware of the impacts of all of our activities on the planet, including the disposable decorations and food waste that often result from celebrations. As we are becoming more aware about environmental issues, we’re learning more and more ways to have fun and host friends and family while still being good stewards of the local and global environment! Making your celebrations eco-friendly not only minimizes their impact on the planet but also sets a positive example for guests, so without further ado, let’s get into everything we have learned about throwing environmentally friendly parties!

12 Eco-Friendly Party Ideas

1. Invitations: Go Digital

Inviting your guests old-school with an official invitation is a lot of fun, but is unnecessary in the digital age. Skip the paper and opt for digital invitations. Plenty of websites offer beautiful, customizable designs that can convey all the necessary event details without cutting down a single tree. If physical invitations are necessary, choose seed paper. These products are not only made from recycled paper, but guests can compost or plant them and enjoy flowers long after the party.

2. Composting Bins

Set up clearly labeled bins for composting, waste, and recycling. Adding composting bins around your party venue to collect food scraps and compostable dishware can significantly reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills, and makes it easier to recycle other materials!

3. Sustainable Party Supplies

Choose reusable or compostable party supplies. Opt for items made from bamboo, recycled paper, or other sustainable materials. These products are very functional, but take a lesser toll on the planet.

4. Eco-Friendly Decor

When it comes to party decorations, we often don’t think about where our favorite items come from. Reusable, borrowed, or biodegradable decor items can significantly reduce the impact on the environment, and can be more affordable is reused in the long run. Fabric streamers, potted plants, and decorations made from recycled materials can enhance your party ambiance while staying green. Or just borrow some decor from friends or family! Dip into your imagination and creativity and make your party truly unique by skipping mass-produced decorations.

5. Plant-Based Menu

Offer a menu that features plant-based dishes. Not only are they delicious, but they also have a lower carbon footprint compared to meat-based options. Incorporate local and seasonal produce to further reduce your party’s environmental impact.

6. Sustainable Party Favors

Give guests eco-friendly party favors such as seed packets, small potted plants, organic candles or homemade treats in reusable jars. These gifts are thoughtful, practical, and promote a sustainable lifestyle.

7. Energy-Efficient Lighting

Use solar-powered lights or LED string lights to create a festive atmosphere without excessive energy consumption. These lighting options can be used multiple times and are more energy-efficient than traditional bulbs.

8. Water Station

Set up a water station with a large dispenser rather than offering bottled water. Encourage guests to bring their own reusable water bottles or provide glasses that can be washed and reused.

9. Carpooling and Public Transport

Encourage guests to carpool or use public transportation. Provide incentives like special prizes or preferred seating for those who choose eco-friendly travel options.

10. DIY Decorations and Games

Get creative with DIY projects for both decorations and party games. Use recycled materials to craft unique, personalized decor items and games that reflect the theme of your party.

11. Local Entertainment

Support local artists and entertainers by hiring them for your event. This not only reduces travel-related emissions but also enhances the community feel of your party.

12. Recyclable Packaging

One last way to support the environment is by offering products sourced from producers that only provide biodegradable and 100% recyclable packaging. Gigli THC cocktails for instance are 100% recyclable, and are a great addition to the menu and atmosphere of your party.
