5 steps to a more sustainable children’s party

1. Send e-invitations

Nowadays, virtually everyone asks for a text or email RSVP so why don;t you save on paper and invite your little party goers bu using a What’s App group or Facebook event?

2.Plastic-free party bags

Most children love to receive their party bag at the end of a party so it is hard to argue that they are unnecessary but, how often do those bags full of goodies end up, a few days later, as a collection of plastic nick-nacks that no one is really interested in? How about replacing the plastic with an Easter Egg or a book?

Florence & Burt offer a range of plastic-free eco party bags Henley Chocolates have a selection of treats with plastic-free packaging.

3. Cut out the waste

No one wants to spend ages tidying up afterwards! Use compostable tableware or did you know that you can hire reusable tableware - Florence & Burt even do the washing up for you!

4. Have a plan for left-over food

It can be tricky to cater for tastes and judge portion sizes. Try making individual lunch boxes with a pre-ordered sandwich filler or make sure any leftovers will keep for school lunches or can be frozen.

5. Recycle decorations
