Why We Care?
Because we like trees. And sunsets, and summer meadows full of flowers and swimming in the sea. And because the way that we keep consuming everything at the speed we do means that one day our children won't experience the same pure and natural and free things. Being green means that you decide it's a good thing to recycle and carry your own bags to the supermarket and use special light bulbs and walk to work if you live near enough, and shower in a bucket to flush the loo (only joking about the bucket thing but the rest is true!) So if we all want to make an effort, how about extending that to the next party you have? Children's parties are normally full of plastic plates, plastic cutlery, plastic tablecloths, plastic party bags and plastic toys. And the funny thing is that five minutes after the party, the whole lot is thrown in the bin, without a second thought, to sit there for thousands of years without our concern. Yet, it is our concern. It stays there for years and years and years and years or it ends up in the sea clogging up the ocean and causing havoc with our animals. It might have brought thirty minutes of happiness to our precious children... but it still means it brings hundreds of years worth of sadness to our planet. And if we need our planet and our planet needs us, surely it would be a nice and friendly thing to do to try to be nice to everybody? Planet included. So, here is one option. A party with no plastic. Crazy I know but actually it makes so much sense. Not only do children look after quality party bag fillers more carefully to make them last longer, but without all that party plastic, our lovely planet can look after us even longer as well to ensure we, and our children can continue on into the future for generations to come. You will feel all warm and happy about the positive contribution you will be making with your next plastic-free planet-friendly party! It's a triple incentive really... > You are choosing gorgeous, high quality party supplies, which are sure to be commented on by your guests. > You are teaching our children about why we choose the products we do, and > You are helping the planet by reducing its plastic hangover - yay you! That's amazing. I hope you like the selection of party supplies we have brought together over the past few years. We make sure that each and every product fits all of the following criteria: compostable, biodegradable, recycled, natural, organic, sustainable and fair-trade and if it does not , it can't come in. Not only that, but we also have a concern about the way in which each product is manufactured. So, we only work with people who look after their staff with good pay and nice working conditions and cups of tea and stuff. We work with a couple of social enterprises out in India so the purchasing of these products means that you are also helping underprivileged people make a fair living and educate themselves. We think that's wonderful news. We have also kept the important issue of packaging at the forefront of our mind and none of our products are over-packaged. Where possible, our products are protected using biodegradable PLA or compostable GM free bags, our boxes are made from recycled board, our envelopes and jiffy bags are biodegradable and recyclable, our packaging tape is recyclable and produced from silicone free paper with natural adhesive and our protective chips are made from starch which is biodegradable, fully compostable and manufactured from annually renewable resources. Clever stuff really. So, if you like what you see, please do tell a friend, or lots of them if you know lots of people, so we can spread the message and do our bit towards a sustainable future. We’d love you to sign up for our newsletter and our Facebook page so that we can stay in touch. Your feedback is an important thing to us too, so if you can think of something that we haven't got, please do get in touch. We are real people who always answer the phone, we are always friendly and willing to stop for a natter and a cup of tea and maybe a biscuit or two, so pick up the phone and give us a biscuit break! We hope we can be of service to you very soon.
