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

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!


totally eco chic – green is the new black October 26, 2008


I’m on a search for the most stylish, natural, ethically sourced, fabulous, affordable and convenient compostable party ware and products. We all know that no-one in their right mind would choose a polystyrene cup over a 100% biodegradable one, so I am reviewing recycled, compostable, biodegradable, recyclable, ethical, locally sourced and easy on the wallet companies, products and businesses!


Although, I now have to admit, I’ve become obsessed by all things green and eco, so might ramble on about eco website developers, fairtrade chocolate mousse… or lack of
