EARTH DAY GIVEAWAY #4: Green you’re next Party with Compostable CHINET!

When we throw one of our popular summer BBQ’s, you can bet Chinet is there with us. Their Chinet Casuals and Chinet Classic White line are both made of 100 percent pre-consumer recycled material. But did you know both lines also biodegrade in home composting?! That’s right! Just toss into your composting bin with your leftover scraps and in just 2-5 weeks you’ve got nutrient rich soil.

Just in time for the beautiful spring weather, Chinet is offering one of our readers a chance to GREEN their Party with Chinet’s line of dinner plates, luncheon plates, new salad/side dishes as well as napkins.

    Hi! so nice to discover your blog! My eco tip for parties would be to host it in a natural setting like a park, and enjoy the sunshine and the breeze instead of using electricity at home! I just walked by a cute, simple kids birthday party at central park this weekend and thought it was a great idea!

    One tip I have found is to use organic materials to decorate. I use tree branches and leaves. I like to use moss for table decorations. I also use tomatoes and stuff them with dip instead of using plastic plates and I like to use a watermelon for fruit salad.

    My daughter’s birthday is next week, and we sent out eVites instead of paper invitations, and have requested that gifts come UNWRAPPED ( we will provide cloth wrapping bags for all gifts!)

    Have the party outside instead of in the home! Use reusable napkins & hey use dishes not paper!
