Under the summer sun, patios get to bloom with cold drinks and conversations. In winter, families, and friends come together to celebrate events like new year’s feasts. While festivities are a lot of fun, with all the disposable utensils, wrapping paper, and food waste, how can anyone throw an eco-friendly party?
Let’s discuss some important considerations to help you understand.
Avoid Plastic Utensils and Paper Plates
Non-plastic disposable products like bamboo utensils are the best eco-friendly option when choosing cutlery for your party. What’s more, people don’t like doing dishes.
If you think your plates may get smashed during the party, you can also consider a finger-food menu. Providing toothpicks for the food that’s messy to eat with fingers and guests will eat smaller portions of food which they can pick with their hands.
This can save you budget and also reduce waste at the end of the day. If this isn’t possible, you can also use steel utensils with steel straws. Reusable utensils like steel ones can be used again and don’t give much too much trouble when cleaning.
If you think you want to really want to receive gifts, ask your guests to buy your services if you have any rather than give you stuff. However, if you need physical gifts, you can give your guests a gift list. For instance, newlywed couples can share their bridal registry to suggest gifts to their guests. If you’re having a kids’ party, you can also insist on non-plastic gifts. Let your guests know that all the presents are to be wrapped in old newspapers or recyclable paper.
Make A Food Leftover Plan
Food waste is a real problem after festivities. It often arises when you don’t know how many guests are going to show up. On the other hand, not serving enough food can be a nightmare for the host so people usually over-prepare and overcook.
However, it isn’t hard to plan for portions. Consider the number of kids and adults and then work it out. If the guests don’t have much of an appetite, you can plan for handing over leftovers. Another great idea is to put the food on display so the guests will refill their plates when needed.
