How to Host a Sustainable Get Together

Hosting a get-together is an enjoyable experience, why not bring them to the next level by hosting a planet friendly one? By implementing sustainable practices you can reduce your carbon footprint and still enjoy a fun and memorable event. In this blog post, we'll share tips and ideas for hosting an eco-friendly celebration, from choosing the right location to serving sustainable food and drinks. Let's get started!

Get Your Food and Drink Local 

Choosing locally sourced and organic foods and drinks not only supports local businesses but also reduces the carbon footprint associated with transportation. Plus, it's a great way to showcase the flavors of your region and support sustainable agriculture.

Use Compostable Cups, Straws, and Sustainable Decorations

Instead of disposable plates, utensils, and cups, opt for bamboo, reusable or compostable options. Holy City Straw Companie’s Premium Home Bar Starter Package with reusable straws and a bar caddy can be a good start! You can also avoid disposable decorations and choose sustainable alternatives like potted plants, flowers, or recycled decorations. You can try Artisen’s Sabai Grass Oval Decorative Basket to put snacks inside. And don't forget to reuse decorations for future events!

Use Recycling and Compost Bins

Make it easy for your guests to recycle by providing clearly labeled recycling and compost bins. This not only helps divert waste from landfills but also makes cleaning up after the get together a breeze.

As another option, you can ask friends to bring their own reusable food containers to minimize leftovers. This way, you can minimize the amount of food waste, and give your friends tasty leftovers for them to enjoy afterward.

Prepare Games Based On Eco-Knowledge 

Who says learning can't be fun? Engage your guests with games that teach them about environmental issues. For example, you could create a scavenger hunt where guests search for items that are recyclable or compostable. Or set up a Trivia game with questions related to sustainability. The possibilities are endless!

Reduce Energy Consumption

Using energy-efficient light bulbs, turning off lights when not in use, and opting for natural lighting are all great ways to reduce energy consumption. You can also consider using battery-operated candles instead of real ones to reduce the risk of fire. And don't forget to encourage guests to carpool, bike, or walk to the event to reduce carbon emissions.

With these tips, you can host an eco-friendly get together that not only celebrates the occasion but also helps protect our planet. So go ahead, plan your get together, and let's make a difference together!
