Buy eco-friendly Amala Earth party supplies and wow your guests at your next get-together.
Parties are fun, whether it is to celebrate a special occasion or spruce up a mundane weekend. But, cleaning up the avalanche of plastic cups, straws, plates, and bottles can be an absolute chore! It can take hours for you to clean the disposed waste, but it can take centuries for the planet to clean them, maybe even longer. Becoming an environmentally responsible citizen goes a long way in securing our tomorrow. If you are serious about reducing your individual carbon footprint (as all of us should be), now is the time to consider greener alternatives.
Expert recommended tips to throw an eco-friendly party
Carefully considering the implications of your choices will help inculcate the right attitude towards improving the state of our planet. It is essential to make sustainability a habit and even teach future generations to adopt that lifestyle. If each of us pauses to consider how our actions affect the grand scheme of things, we may make different choices. We've compiled a list of expert-curated tips that will help you make your next party a win for the environment as well.
Plan ahead: This may seem simple, but when the D-day comes and your guest list overshoots, you wouldn’t want to be scurrying to bring out extra plastic cups and plates for everyone. So it helps to have a number in mind and keep a margin for extras. Not just that, when you plan in advance, you can integrate eco-friendly alternatives for most aspects, including decor and seating arrangements as well.
Start at the invite stage: Sending e-vites or plantable invites already sets the tone for your party. This gives guests an idea of what to expect, so they wouldn’t raise eyebrows when you bring out those bamboo straws and bagasse bowls.
Put signs for recycling: Make sure you have the proper disposable bins and containers at home that guests can trash in. This reduces your work tremendously as you wouldn’t have to sift through to segregate the trash.
Stock up on biodegradable cutlery: One of the most critical aspects of every party is the cutlery. Before you know it, plastic disposables can quickly lead to a tremendous carbon footprint from a single party itself. Stocking up on eco-friendly cutlery reduces the need and temptation to buy plastic variants as a quick-fix and last-minute resort.
Avoid balloons and streamers: These may look festive but take hundreds of years to degrade into the soil. Opt for eco-friendly alternatives, such as origami bunting or handcrafted paper decorations. Not only does it add a unique touch to your party, but it is also a hundred times more environmentally friendly. What’s more, often, these can be reused multiple times, leading to less waste.
