Here's the dirt: Kids' birthday parties generate a lot of trash. Wrapping paper, disposable plates and cups, paper tablecloths, birthday cards, balloons, favors and other items add up to several bags of garbage. By making more environmentally friendly choices, you can keep the earth green — and save a little green in your wallet.
InvitationsOne of the easiest tips for a green party is to use online rather than paper invitations. You'll save on paper and postage, and it's an easy way for other harried parents to reply
Dishes and Table Ware
Some of the biggest sources of waste at children's parties are the plates, napkins, tablecloths, cups and cutlery that get tossed away after one use. Rather than buying paper products, offer reusable, kid-friendly cups and plates.
Forget the streamers and balloons that often pop before the party. Instead, use materials you already have on hand to create longer lasting decorations.
