In a world where things are built to be broken and replaced, sustainability is a precious feature.
Buying and using items with longer life cycles is also a way to conserve our natural resources.
Be creative in your planning
If you’re planning or hosting a baby shower, here are some green ideas that were given to me by other creative mommas:
Use mason jars and glass straws for beverages— make fresh squeezed juice instead of bottled punch, and fresh fruit bouquets for centerpieces
Give guests a potted plant to take home as a thank you gift
Make centerpieces out of tall glass containers and fill with eco-green baby products and top with flowers in their own container
Wrap gifts with baby blankets & towels, or use containers/baskets she may have registered for
Have a wishing well for guests to fill with small, unwrapped, eco baby products
Throwing a greener, cleaner baby shower is easier and cheaper than you may think! It just takes some brain-storming and dedication on your part.
