Today is the 40th Annual Earth Day Celebration! Did you know that it takes 500 years for plastic to break down compared to the 6 months it takes for cotton and paper to break down? With that in mind, we have put together some great tips for you to help in an effort to save the earth by “going green” with your upcoming events.
- Send Electronic Invitations instead of paper invitations. Sending invitations to guests via email cuts back on paper waste and can even make it easier for your guests to RSVP and will help you keep track of the guest count, as most electronic invitation sites automatically creates an RSVP list for you!

- Instead of disposable streamers try reusable ribbon, scarves or beads. Use natural candles such as Soy based Candles. Also use banners and signs that can be reused at future events.Green Party Favors
Green Party Favors:
- Rather than giving guests boxes of candy or a candle they probably will never use, let your guests know that you have planted a tree or adopted an animal in their name through a wildlife conservation organization.
