Baby showers are just one more event that can easily be made green, and if you’ve got a mama-to-be who has an eye on the environment, make her proud by throwing her an eco-friendly shower!

Set the tone at the eco friendly baby shower by sending out botanical invitations that will sprout flowers when planted. For the party, use décor that isn’t disposable – fabric (instead of paper) tablecloths and napkins, a handmade fabric garland that can do double-duty in the new babe’s nursery afterwards, and potted flower favors that also double as centerpieces are all ways to do just that. Look for wine in eco-friendly packaging, and serve beverages in a punch bowl with glasses (instead of bottled drinks). And encourage guests to add sustainable, organic items to their gifts; both mama and baby-to-be will thank you for it.
