Eco Party Boxes! by Jessica Hodges
Lately I’ve become more and more stressed about using tons of paper products. I just feel like I’m using a tree and throwing it in the trash. I will not say that I’m really good about choosing the right products and being perfectly “green” but I am trying to be more educated and aware of the things that I use.
I was so excited to come across this Eco Party Box website where you can buy a kit that contains 100% biodegradable or compostable supplies for a party! Reading about the contents of the box is kind fun – stuff made with sugar cane, corn, etc. And to be honest, I know that sometimes we get tricked into thinking something is good for the environment because it is made with corn or recycled products but in reality it’s worse for the environment because of the process it takes to make it with those different items.
