Eco-Friendly Baby Shower Ideas

Let’s Throw an Eco-Friendly Baby Shower!

Need to throw a baby shower and want to do it without all the waste? Here are some tips for doing just that!

  • Invitesenvelopes
    • Reach out to your guests with electronic invites or print your invitations on paper made from recycled materials.
      • For example, check out these super cute and eco-friendly baby shower invitations from Paper Culture!
  • Gifts
  • Decorations and Party Ware
    • Instead of using balloons or streamers to decorate, use natural materials like flowers and plants. As a result, you’ll produce less waste and remind your guests of the natural theme of the party.table decor
    • Use cloth tablecloths rather than plastic. They look nicer anyway, and they are reusable – someday this baby will have a birthday party and you can whip them out again!
    • Use compostable partyware or actual dishes/silverware. You could even get some people to help out with dishwashing after the whiteboardparty is over!
  • Games
    • Try to avoid games with too many paper print-outs – use a chalkboard or dry-erase board instead if you want to play games like this that you don’t plan on keeping for a scrapbook.sunny day
  • Have the shower outside if the weather is agreeable!
    • You won’t have to pay to rent a space, use lighting and air conditioning/heating, or, most importantly, clean up your own home to have a bunch of people come over!
  • Don’t forget to have a recycling bin on hand for any recyclable waste you do produce!
