Guide to eco-friendly baby shower

Organising a baby shower can be stressful. However, with a little guidance and planning you can create an enjoyable event that is eco and budget friendly. Here are some tips.

  1. Location: choose a location that is easily accessible to reduce travel times and emissions. If possible, host an event outdoors to reduce energy costs.

  2. Invitations: send out invites electronically or create personal invitations made out of recycled material. Alternatively, use a plantable seed paper invitations that are made from recycled papers and are embedded with a seed, once used, plant the paper into the ground or pot.

  3. Gift Registry: Create a sustainable baby gift registry including the things you need such as organic clothing, cloth diapers, reusable baby products, eco-friendly nursery items and how much you need. Removes guesswork for your guests and reduces unwanted gifts or the receiving of too many of the same items. Encourage guests to consider second-hand gifts as well.

  4. Gift bags: you can ask your guests that may be bringing a gift or taking a gift to someone else’s baby shower, either not wrap the gifts or to use reusable gift bags. This helps reduce unnecessary waste.

  5. Sustainable Decorations: Opt for reusable and eco-friendly decorations, such as fabric banners, potted plants, or flowers from local and organic sources. Avoid balloons and other single-use decorations.

  6. Partyware: Use reusable tableware, such as cloth napkins, reusable plates, and stainless steel or bamboo utensils, instead of disposable options. Or opt for eco friendly disposable utensils.

  7. Party Favours: Offer eco-friendly party favours like plant seeds, organic soaps, or reusable items that guests can take home and use. Avoid plastic and single-use favours.

  8. Responsible Waste Disposal: Set up clearly labelled recycling and compost bins to ensure proper waste disposal during the event.

  9. Eco-Conscious Games and Prizes: Organise eco-conscious games and offer sustainable prizes:


    1. Guess the baby food:

      1. 10 cans of unique baby food jars
