Climate Quick Tip: Plastic-Less Party Planning

When planning your next hosting gig:

  • Avoid single-use plastic dishes and straws and instead opt for reusable plates, cups, and cutlery. More elegant and less wasteful.
  • Stay away from balloons and glitter, which enter our water systems and kill marine animals. Instead decorate using fabric decorations, string lights, and live plants. 

Imagine It! offers tips on how to plan a waste-conscious party by avoiding single-use plastics and decorating with reusable items. Dear Dot reminds us that balloons blow.
