One of each year’s most thrilling events every child is impatiently longing for is his/her birthday party. Children fantasize this occasion to include numerous friends and guests, plenty of sweets, and dozens of entertaining games.
On the other side, from a parent’s point of view, this magical kid’s day is usually accompanied with not-so-cheap solutions and tons of accumulated waste needing to be disposed in an environment-friendly manner.
Eco-friendly parties are not only reflecting your impact on keeping the environment safe, but it is also a very efficient way of cutting down those event’s high costs.
It’s an easy and interesting eco-challenge
One of the essential things when organizing a birthday party is creating and sending out invitations to all the guests your child expects. This is an area where you can not only save money and reduce enormous paper waste, but it’s a real time saver, considering all the demanding tasks you should complete.
By sending invitations online, instead of using paper-made substitutes, you have chosen a perfect solution for either saving extra money and taking care of the environment. Besides, your kids can be great company in designing the invitations.
Eco-friendly and full tummies
What is a birthday party, especially for children, without a cake? Instead of buying a regular sugar-overfilled cake, try a natural vegetable or fruit-based one stuffed with light cream. Keep the same healthy spirit by designing the rest of the birthday menu with servings of fresh fruits, integral cookies, apple chips, and natural fruit juices.
This will make dishes look more colorful, and there’s no doubt the kids will love it.
Planning an ecologically oriented party is a unique opportunity to share your green thinking with your kids and their friends. The easiest way to do so is to involve eco-entertainment. Having a birthday party outside, surrounded by nature, is one option you can apply, but if you plan an indoor party, then music-based games can be an interesting choice.
Another attractive solution is to rent a space where you can bring accompanying green birthday accessories. As an expert in providing kids’ birthday party venues, Boing Central underlines that eco-friendly parties are not that unusual, even if organized in a specifically chosen venue.
Reusable decor and accessories
Party decorations and dishware are an unavoidable part of the birthday event and an avenue where you can implement green tactics. Replace single-use plates and cups with reusable ones painted with your kid’s favorite themes.
Avoiding disposable decor elements will significantly diminish the amount of garbage after the party and will also make positive impact on your finances. Enrich party space with materials such as wood or recycled paper ornaments, fresh or dried flowers, or even ask your children and their friends to help out with ornaments using crayons and other materials.
