It’s your kid’s birthday and you want to do something different this year. Then, why not go in for a green birthday? Conventional birthdays lead to a lot of wastage such as torn wrapping paper, disposable cups and plates, excessive gifts, cardboard boxes and the like. Plan a party that is eco-friendly so that the environment benefits and your child learns green values.
The first thing that you plan for a birthday is invitations. Opt to buy eco-friendly invites that are made from recycled paper. Or better still; make your own invitation cards. You could use paper, old gift wrapping and envelopes lying around the house. Of course, nothing is more eco-friendly than an electronic invitation sent via e-mail or through chat windows.
