Our low-waste 5th birthday party was a hit with the birthday girl. She requested a unicorn-rainbow party, so that’s what she got. Star of the show was the rainbow cake made by grandma. My attempts to keep the waste to a minimum was: • Printed our own invites and didn’t use envelopes. • Used decorations we already had (bunting from our wedding reception that makes an appearance at every party). No balloons. • Reused candles, plus a number 5 candle from freebay and a unicorn toy from the car boot sale that I used as a cake topper. • The village hall has a stack of kids crockery to use. • Entertainment was a hired bouncy castle and colouring sheets and pencils from the car boot sale (I bought a 20p colouring book and cut the pages out). Oh, and we did the Hokey Cokey too! I’ll do a separate post about the party bags.
You can cut out those thin little produce bags at the grocery store by putting your produce directly into a reusable produce bag. There is still a few listed in my shop (link in bio) right now and THEY SHIP FOR FREE!
For some, this may sound like too much work to start with, and is that we have grown used to the commodities of the modern world, forgetting that we are neither separate from, nor unaffected by, our natural surrounding and that the course of the human race is directly affected by the direction of the Earth's environment in which we live. Therefore, we must embrace practices which have little (or no) impact on our environment both now and in the future. . ᴛʜᴇ ғᴏʟʟᴏᴡɪɴɢ; ᴀʀᴇ sᴍᴀʟʟ ʙᴜᴛ ɪᴍᴘᴀᴄᴛғᴜʟ ʜᴀʙɪᴛs ᴡᴇ ᴄᴀɴ ᴇᴀsɪʟʏ ᴀᴅᴅʀᴇss. ⬇️ • ɢɪᴠᴇ ᴜᴘ ʙᴏᴛᴛʟᴇᴅ ᴡᴀᴛᴇʀ Nearly 30 Billion plastic water bottles are sold annually in the U.S with less than 20% of them being recycled (and even recycling them wastes unnecessary energy). A great way of saving resources and money is to invest in a home filtration system and purchasing a reusable stainless steel water bottle. . • ʀᴇᴅᴜᴄᴇ ʏᴏᴜʀ ᴡᴀsᴛᴇ Reducing the amount of waste you bring in and the amount of trash that goes to landfill is an important part of any green lifestyle. You can put into practice precycling and recycling; and without much effort, you can decrease the trash in your home by 75%. **ʙᴇ ᴏɴ ᴛʜᴇ ʟᴏᴏᴋᴏᴜᴛ ғᴏʀ ᴏᴜʀ ɴᴇxᴛ ᴍɪᴄʀᴏʙʟᴏɢ ᴏɴ ᴛʜɪs ᴛᴏᴘɪᴄ* . • ᴇᴀᴛ ᴏʀɢᴀɴɪᴄ ғᴏᴏᴅs ғʀᴏᴍ sᴍᴀʟʟ ʟᴏᴄᴀʟ ʀᴇsᴛᴀᴜʀᴀɴᴛs Small businesses are more likely to support other business within the community, like farmers and butcher shops. Therefore, reducing outsourcing, in turn, reducing environmental impact. . • ɢʀᴇᴇɴ ʏᴏᴜʀ ᴘᴇʀsᴏɴᴀʟ ᴄᴀʀᴇ Use organic natural products with minimum or no packaging, take shorter baths, choose reusable supplies, and opt for an easy to manage haircut. . • ʀᴀɪsᴇ ʜᴇᴀʟᴛʜʏ, ᴇᴄᴏ-ᴄᴏɴsᴄɪᴏᴜs ᴄʜɪʟᴅʀᴇɴ Raising our kids to be healthy and aware of the environment is crucial. The best way to lead them in the right direction is by being a good rollmodel yourself; showing that your care about and respect the environment. . Have you switched your lifestyle to be more green?

My latest apprentice 😊. Roman loves his little @plantoysuk pots and tools. These get used for all sorts of play. He is also happy just playing with the soil without any toys- especially digging a hole and chucking the compost on the grass 🙈😆 👨🌾 What's your little person's favourite outdoor activity at the moment?
