In an endeavour to throw my 2-year-old daughter a more eco-friendly birthday party this year, I stumbled upon this eco-friendly online party supply retailer called Little Cherry. I believe it is quite a small, British founded company so a nice change from ordering from Amazon (which I am guilty of doing a lot).
As we do not have enough tableware for a whole birthday party, I needed to get some disposable plates and cups. At Little Cherry they have a big assortment of both plates and cups in a variety of biodegradable and compostable materials. Plates are made from bamboo, sugarcane, palm leaf and wheat fibre. Clear drinks cups are made from bioplastic which is a renewable and sustainable material made from plants and is both compostable and recyclable.
In the end I ordered the palm leaf plates and the bioplastic cups. I also got biodegradable balloons (yes, there is such a thing!) and compostable string made from natural raffia for hanging them. It doubled as a very nice string for wrapping presents as well.
I was especially impressed with how nice the palm leaf plates looked; they created a unique effect on the buffet table. I also thought it was great to see all the materials available that do the same thing as plastic (arguably doing a better job too!) whilst being friendly to our planet.
I’d highly recommend using Little Cherry next time you need party supplies; it was a good buying experience from beginning to end. They also provide supplies for weddings, party decorations, party bags and much more.
