New Packaging Launch February 10, 2009

There are loads of brand changes at the moment…Herbal Essences and Norwich Union (neither a recommendation, merely an observation from too much TV) and my favourite brand is soon introducing their new packaging too…eco my party! I know I talk about it a lot, but I’ve made friends with the lovely Helen who owns and runs the company from home with her hard-working husband and her two young children! She’s told me that at the beginning of March she’s hoping to bring out the new packaging in the style of the website’s opening page … and she’s guaranteed me first dibs on the new products in their beautiful new packaging…



Just a taster of the new range

So look out here for the first look at the new range….


Eco My Valentine – ECO your LOVE!



I never usually even recognise Valentine’s Day, I don’t feel the need to overspend on dinner when the meals are double the price, buy roses when they’ve tripled in price and the terrible waste of all those cheesy chat up lines just because someone said I had to! I do, deep deep down, have a tiny romantic bone in my body somewhere, and even though I don’t celebrate the much over-rated Valentine’s Day, I do HEART all the decorations and imaginative eco ways to Eco YOUR Valentine.



My much loved eco my party have these gorgeous white paper heart garlands which I have entwined around my door frame and their beautiful hanging willow lanterns are currently gently swaying from my rafters! And I’ve just discovered TreeHuggingFamily’s fantastic recommended homemade decorations which are stunning!


eco my party’s new eco party pack! November 17, 2008

I found myself fancying an eco water bottle over the last couple of days and particularly like the Orla Kiely Wottle” at Ethical Superstore, although after reading a bit further I found it was mainly promoting Brita Water products and I really liked it for it’s amusing name! So have decided to stick to reusing my normal water bottles instead of wasting money as well as more plastic…but back to my original point…

This Next have a few people recommending the much loved eco my party‘s Totally Eco Disposable Party Pack….

Eco Party Pack

I must say, eco my party‘s Totally Eco Party Pack is filling a market that isn’t yet catered for, as indeed are their other products, the Totally Eco Disposable Picnic Set springs to mind. I like the fact that it is run by a girl who had a four day festival for a wedding and that it makes eco partying the easiest it could possibly be! Scoop all your party leftovers into the compostable bag it comes with and bury it all on your compost heap – FANTASTIC! 

I’ve had a sneaky look at their new packaging too, you get a teaser on their front holding page here and it is GORGEOUS! Elegant and all sorts of lovely, everyone will be able to see their repackaged party goodies on 1st December when they are launching their new brand – so look out!

The great thing about the Totally Eco Party Pack is that it contains everything you need for a party in one box – except for the food, of course! So while you’re shopping for your party food, birthday cake or Christmas pudding, you can now grab a Totally Eco Party Pack at the same time, hurrah! No more vile “paper” plates covered in plastic, no more foamy taste to your mulled wine, no more bags and bags of rubbish sitting outside your back door and flaccid balloons hanging from your gate for weeks on end, from 1st December onward an easy eco party is a click or a shop away in the Totally Eco Party Pack, and all is stylish, fabulous and 100% biodegradable!

The Totally Eco Party Pack is simple, it contains all your biodegradable plates, bowls, disposable cups for hot or cold drinks, natural recycled napkins, serving plates, gorgeous wooden cutlery, knives, forks and spoons, fairly traded FSC certified natural rubber balloons and biodegradable decorations

eco my party launch November 4, 2008

I’ve just had a great conversation with Helen Thomson, director of much talked about new website

Turns out, she’s lovely and has been reading my blog and even put a link on her “people we like” page to me, so now I know she’s totally eco-chic!

She told me about eco my party launching on 1st December and their new brand identity and new range of products too and gave me the following info, which I’m happy to share with everyone else;

Launch of first ever totally eco party ware brand:

Eco Your Christmas Parties.

Eco My Party, home of totally eco party supplies, is soon to launch the first ever brand of eco-friendly party ware which will be available to both shoppers and stockists. The launch of the range should mark the beginning of the long-awaited end of polystyrene cups and plastic forks.

The unique 100% biodegradable range includes a wide variety of party essentials, from compostable tableware to fairly-traded rubber balloons and eco party games and decorations, all packaged in easily recognisable packaging with great shelf-appeal.

Until now, even online, eco-friendly party ware has been difficult for the customer to source, but eco my party‘s new totally eco party supplies range will make it easy and convenient to throw an environmentally-friendly party that doesn’t sacrifice style for ethics.

Helen Thomson, founder and director of eco my party, says,

“When it comes to parties, tell plastic to fork off with our range of totally eco, 100% biodegradable party supplies.”

The groundbreaking range from the company who wants to put a stop to party waste, will be available to both retailers and consumers from 1st December ’08, from the Eco My Party online store.

In time for Christmas, Eco My Party‘s first-of-its-kind Totally Eco Festive Party Pack offers a convenient way to eco your Christmas and New Year’s parties. The pack includes tableware, decorations, a Totally Eco Christmas Party Ball (the eco-alternative to crackers) and even a Totally Eco Paper Sky Lantern, which float up into the night sky like beautiful miniature hot air balloons.

make your wedding eco chic October 29, 2008

When my sister got married a couple of years ago in a beautiful beautiful field, we could only wish to find a company that provides everything we could want to have a gorgeous get together that wouldn’t leave a mark on the planet

Think beeswax birthday candles that smell of the sweetest honey, so natural that they can melt away on your gorgeous cake and do no harm

Imagine rustic and natural wooden cutlery that is gentle on your delicious food and can be re-used before disappearing in a few weeks

Have bright, beautiful, bamboo bowls that have been hand coiled in Vietnam, bursting with fruit on your table

Ease you eco-conscience with compostable plates and biodegradable bowls

And sip on a steaming cup of hot chocolate this winter in a recycled cup overflowing with thick whipped cream and melting marshmallows

String up handmade, local, organic, fairtrade cotton bunting and infuse your parties year after year with festive flutter

So now it’s easy to be green and to eco your party, wedding, birthday, celebration, halloween, christmas, valentine’s day, new year’s eve, picnic, summer, easter, anniversary, friday

the search for a totally eco party October 29, 2008

I caught This Morning on ITV1 and after watching the car crash that is Kerry Katona, I saw the semi-finalists of their Mumpreneur competition and watched Helen Thomson of eco my party pitch her FANTASTIC company idea to camera.

Of course I checked out their website and LOVE their range of totally eco disposable party supplies that are 100% biodegradable. Now here’s a business that is providing something for all of us who have eco-guilt about using those polystyrene cups and plastic forks which NEVER biodegrade and not compromising on style either.

eco my party has decorations from gorgeous organic hand made and locally sourced bunting to beautiful butterflies, stars and hearts and even for those special occasions you can buy eco my party’s totally eco mini hot air balloon which is sent up into the night sky with the heat from a candle… and for anyone who watched or read Roald Dahl’s Danny the Champion of the World when they were younger, eco my party has come up trumps with these!
