Throw a stylish and fun party without making an impact on the environment. Here is our advice on how to throw an eco-friendly party, Halloween style.
How to Throw an Eco-friendly Party
- Shop Local: You’ve already purchased your pumpkins and gourds from your local farm or farmers market, now it’s time to set the menu. Shop for other seasonal produce: carrots, squash, potatoes and more while you’re at your local market. Keep your menu organic and boost your local economy at the same time. Decorate with gourds, hay and local flowers for an all-natural look. Or keep your flowers potted to plant in the Spring.
- Choose Compostable Party Supplies: Keep your cleanup easy and waste-free by choosing compostable party supplies. Our line of Veneerware® is made from certified organic bamboo. Choose from a large selection of stylish dinnerware, from round, square or scallop-edged plates. bambu® also offers utensil sets, napkins, and more that will compost in 4-6 months.
- Repurpose and Reuse: Entertain often? Explore reusable bamboo party supplies, from bamboo straws, serving ware, and more to keep for your next party. Our line of serving boards and trays are perfect for finger-foods and charcuterie, while bamboo straws can help cut down on the millions of plastic straws used everyday.
Eco-friendly Halloween Party Ideas:
- Pumpkins all around: Use organic pumpkins for decor, your punch bowl, and as a fun activity for the kids to carve or paint their favorite designs. Use bamboo pot scrapers to scrape out the seeds and toast them for the party. Or scrape the inside of sugar pumpkins for your pumpkin pie dessert.
Send out spooky eCards: Go digital with your invitations and send eerie messages to your guests rather than sending paper invites in the mail.At the end of your event have your guests take a pumpkin home with them or leave them up for your fall decor. When the season is over, compost your pumpkins by removing the seeds and any wax or candles. And let nature do the rest.
Serve up a fall soup: Minimal waste and all-natural ingredients, soups are a great way to take advantage of all the fall flavors and warm up after a chilly fall day. Serve soup in compostable bamboo bowls, making clean-up easy and guilt-free.
