BIRTHDAY PARTIES

Eco My Party!

Eco My PartyI’ve already written before about my anxiety over the amount of waste we create with every birthday party… Can you imagine all those plastic cups, plates, cutlery, balloons, decorations, and party favors that end up in the bin with each party we throw? It really makes me sick to think how easy it is to be so wasteful.

It’s a good thing Helen Thomson, an English mom to two boys, decided to create a company which would make it easy to be eco.  Helen’s company, Eco My Party, is a no-fuss party supply shop which sells only eco-friendly products which will decompose in your compost bin after use.  It’s brilliant.

She sells everything you need to create the perfect party: balloons, candles, cups, plates, decorations, stationery, wrapping paper, etc.  All of it is biodegradable, and not to mention, also very stylish (think simple wooden cutlery, cute bamboo serving bowls, organic and fairtrade bunting, etc.).

This is one party supply store we should all be using.  After all, we want our kids to have many, many birthdays to come…

I love it all! It would have been perfect for our garden parties in London (we had a compost bin in the back)!
