Green Party Goods- Planet Friendly Products For Any Celebration

I like to think that I am pretty eco-friendly. I use cloth diapers, recycle, and try to use cloth napkins and towels instead of buying disposable ones. Well, I must say that the idea of buying eco-friendly party goods never crossed my mind. Ever. I am sort of embarrassed to think about all the party goods that we used for Sara Rose's first birthday party.

So imagine my surprise when I was contacted by Carole from Green Party Goods to do a website review and giveaway! Well, I checked out her site and it is just great! In addition to being good for the environment, the products that she carries are gorgeous and affordable.

From Green Party Goods website.
"The earth is suffering as a result of the way we consume resources.
The most offending items in the tableware industry are plastic disposables.
Plastics are petrochemical products, which end up in land fills where they do not degrade.
(10% of the U.S. oil consumption is used to make plastics)

Unfortunately, many celebrations use disposable products destined for land fill.

GreenPartyGoods knows that parents and other celebrators, given the convenience of shopping for eco friendly products that are stylish and sensible, will embrace this option.

All of GreenPartyGoods’ products meet at least one of these criteria: recycled, re-useable, biodegradable, sustainable, or organic.

We have also maintained our commitment to the environment through our packaging materials, when possible.
Boxes are from recycled board, protective chips are biodegradable, tissue paper and labels are from recycled paper. And the cellophane bags and ribbon are biodegradable."

She has tableware, goodies boxes and felt bags, party favors, decorations, green toys and games, eco-friendly green gifts, and tote bags.

I have to say that one of my favorite items that she has are the party hats. Oh how I wish I had the felt princess hat for Sara Rose for her birthday party. Photobucket

Another one of my favorites are the handcrafted wooden toys made in the USA. How cool is this log cabin! Can you imagine how excited a kid would be to get this? I can!
Photobucket

Carole has been generous enough to offer a discount code to my readers: 10% off of toys, use code BUSY10

AND she is also sponsoring a giveaway! She is giving away a party hat of someone's choice and a hand crafted Folk toy of their choice. How cool is that?! (This is one of those times that I am sad that I can not enter my own giveaways, LOL).

To enter, leave me a comment letting me know what your favorite item at Green Party Goods is.

Additional ways to get entries (you must leave me a comment for each extra entry, letting me know about it)

I generally loathe plastic pointless toys (e.g., McDonald's toys, party favors, etc.). It's just junk! But...I understand that there is a coolness quotient to goodie bags, so, my favorite item is the wooden toys that are completely affordable! I like the yo-yo, jacobs ladder and the jumpropes!

Organic products are essentially earth-friendly, sustainable and natural, not only in its entity but in production mode. Which makes safer and healthier.

Theo Trollbeads said...

ook at eBay first. There are many competitors out there trying to get the same customers so you have some good discounts. You can search by price and then sift down your results by positive feedback.Since no one would be that close to the bride, replicas can be substitutes for original jewels. Real stones are expensive and there abound thousands of sites that will sell replicas at a fraction of the cost of the original. You only have to ensure that the jewels you choose have luster and will sparkle from afar.
