It is finally time for the biggest sporting event of the year! The Super Bowl is almost here, and what better way to celebrate than with a party. However, as a responsible modern parent, throwing a sustainable and eco-friendly party should be at the forefront of your mind. Not only is it good for the environment, but it is also a great way to teach your kids how to be green. So, put on your game face and let us discover ways to host the ultimate "green" Super Bowl party!
Sustainable Party Decor
The first step towards an eco-friendly party is to cut down on decorations that are not sustainable. One great way is to opt for zero-waste party decor. Create a fun and festive atmosphere with decorations that can be reused or repurposed.
For instance, use football-themed banners, paper cutouts or confetti made from recycled paper or biodegradable material. You can also light up the party with eco-friendly LED lighting that lasts longer and uses less energy.
Provide Biodegradable Plates and Utensils
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the US alone produced 267.8 million tons of trash in 2017. One way to reduce waste at your Super Bowl party is to use biodegradable or compostable plates and utensils, and cloth napkins. They are made from renewable resources like sugarcane, bamboo, or corn, and don’t add to landfills. You can also encourage guests to bring their own reusable cups and plates to further reduce waste.
Opt for Green Snacks
Food is a significant part of the Super Bowl party, but it doesn’t have to be unhealthy or unhealthy for the environment. Opt for eco-friendly snack options that are organic, non-GMO and locally-sourced. This ensures that the food is fresh and free from harmful pesticides.
You can also use meat alternatives like tofu or vegetable protein instead of meat to reduce your carbon footprint. And make sure to buy in bulk to avoid excessive packaging and food waste.
Provide Eco-Friendly Party Straws
A fun way to liven up your party drinks is to add eco-friendly party straws. Unlike plastic straws, which pose a significant threat to marine life, eco-friendly party straws are made from compostable materials such as bamboo, reed, paper, or stainless steel. You can also go for reusable straws that come in fun colors and designs, and they can be used again and again.
Donate to Environmental Charities
Finally, an eco-friendly Super Bowl party would not be complete without giving back. You can donate to environmental charities, such as Greenpeace or World Wildlife Fund, to support their conservation efforts. Alternatively, you can host a fundraiser at your Super Bowl party to raise money for sustainability initiatives in your local community.
Hosting an eco-friendly Super Bowl party is not only better for the environment, but it’s also a great way to teach your kids about sustainability. Going green doesn’t have to be boring or challenging. With these simple tips, you can throw the ultimate "green" Super Bowl party that’s fun, festive, and eco-friendly. Enjoy the big game!
