While birthdays are for joy and laughter, presents and parties, they can also be great time to go green either subtly or as a learning opportunity for kids. The first introduction to minding the Earth is often in elementary school with the “Three Rs” — Reduce, Reuse, Recycle — so let’s begin there.
While “reduce” is probably the most difficult one to implement, it is worth it since birthday parties often have so much paper and plastic products and decorations that are bought and thrown away within hours:
“Reuse” is the most fun way to go green because kids love using things they’ve made, and it can help your guests go green as well.
This is the simplest way to go green at a party because the key to recycling is making it easy to do it.
If you are really feeling the Going Green theme, you can make the Earth the theme of your party.
Have a wonderful birthday party and thanks for giving the Earth a present, too!
