Happy Birthday America! Independence Day is coming up and party plans are happening all over the country. We certainly love to celebrate with fireworks and food but we also need to be aware that it definitely is one of the least Eco-friendly holidays!
If you are gathering your friends for a barbecue or cookout, while you want them to have fun you also want to make sure you are doing everything you can to be as earth-friendly as possible. Don’t worry we can help! Here are a couple of ideas to make the most out of this Fourth of July Celebration while staying green!
As far as tableware, depending on how many people you are having over, it can be a burden to do the dishes… Don’t worry! There are plenty of Eco-friendly disposable options! If you are looking for fancy and elegant plates, our Sugarcane collection is perfect for an upscale look! 100% compostable, sturdy and grease resistant, sugarcane plates will make your guests feel special and still Eco-friendly.
If you are looking for a more rustic and original solution, Bamboo leaf plates are ideal for barbecues, look beautiful on the table and are also 100% biodegradable.
Here are 5 easy eco-friendly 4th of july tips to follow:
- Watch your electricity consumption. Of course if the weather allows it – and it looks like it will this year – it is a lot better to have an outdoor party! It’s more friendly, helps you save energy, and you also won’t have to clean!
- Grill greener. The 4th of July is probably the biggest barbecue day of the year so think about your different options! The least polluting grills are the electric ones even if they do use electricity.
- Think about getting water dispensers instead of bottles to avoid unnecessary waste and if you also want to get beer, a keg is a lot more Eco-friendly than hundreds of cans or bottles!
- Recycle. It may sound obvious but everyone still doesn’t always do it. Don’t skip that part! It’s not hard and very important.
But the special Eco friendly touch you absolutely want to add is of course the stunning pick displays! Made of Bamboo and reusable, and they are great for passing Hors d’oeuvres but above all they add this fun and original touch no one else has! With the variety of picks you can choose from, you know your party can only be successful!
Have a great Independence Day, be Green and most importantly, be safe!
