According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), “the household waste in the United States jumps up by 25% – about 1 million extra tons, between Thanksgiving and New Year’s.” In the hope of lessening the impact of party waste and making it simpler for consumers who are planning special events, new site EcoPartyTime.com is now the convenient, one-stop destination for affordable, earth-friendly party items for birthday, anniversary, baby shower and graduation celebrations, as well as for holidays like Christmas, Easter and Halloween.
“I was inspired to launch the company after non-recyclable plastic and toxic materials made up the majority of party supplies I used for my own celebrations,” said Monica Garg Singhal, Owner and Founder of EcoPartyTime.com. With a passion for reducing waste in her own life, she felt party-planning consumers needed a place where they could shop with awareness and decorate celebrations without guilt – and now they can!
In an effort to serve as a model for a new trend in greener celebrations, EcoPartyTime.com features party products and supplies that are natural, organic, recycled or sustainable. Consumers can find everything from tableware made from organic bamboo and 100% chlorine free recycled paper, to decorations, goodie bags, party hats made of reusable felt, 100% cotton and silk costumes, and favors such as organic cookie favors and personalized seed favors – all in one spot.
“Aiming to reduce waste at a party can be realistic and affordable; since once the party is over, many of these items can be re-used or re-gifted and some may even become keepsakes. Moreover, eco-party planning can set an example for attending guests, especially kids, leaving a lasting impression about environmental consciousness” added Singhal.
EcoPartyTime.com will continue to evolve its product offerings, bringing consumers the latest and most innovative eco-friendly party products on the market – so that even while being green, parties can still look their best. To inspire shoppers, the company plans to include information on every product page about the green benefits of each product, and bring to light the background stories of the suppliers who are going the extra mile in an attempt to green every aspect of their business operation. Additionally, EcoPartyTime.com pledges to organize yearly events in local communities to raise awareness and donate 5% of their profits to charities devoted to environment conservation.
“Celebrations are a huge part of our lives, but celebrating green can be a challenge because it’s not always easy to find eco-friendly items to substitute for non-recyclable paper and plastic throwaways. How great to discover a store that brings together a choice of items to help make any celebration eco-fabulous,” said Lynn Colwell, of CelebrateGreen.net and co-author of Celebrate Green! Creating Eco-Savvy Holidays, Celebrations and Traditions for the Whole Family.
