Planning an Eco-Friendly Baby Shower

It must be baby season, because it feels like tons of my girlfriends are expecting right now, and that means lots of baby showers!

We just threw a shower for one of my closest friends here in Atlanta, and I feel really lucky that the folks planning this shindig with me share my feelings about waste. At every step, we did our best to make sure that we threw a party with minimal waste but that was also beautiful and fun for everyone involved.

From the food to the decor and even the activities, planning a baby shower can come with a lot of waste. We want to make a sustainable world for these wee ones to live in, so why not start by planning a shower that’s in line with your environmental philosophy, right? Here are some ways that you can plan a baby shower that’s as green as it is fun!
