Shopping for wholesome food shouldn't break your budget—and thanks to Thrive Market, now it doesn't have to. Every week, we'll show you how much you can save, whether you're looking for healthy snacks, green home cleaning products, or anything in between. Because here, we think healthy food should be accessible to everyone. This week, we look at how much you can save on everything you need to throw a sustainable, eco-friendly party.
Half the fun of the holiday season is throwing parties. When the bubbly is flowing, the hors d'oeuvres are served, and the guests are merry, it’s easy to forget about the mountain of trash you’ll have to take out tomorrow morning.
Of course, using china dishes you wash yourself is the most sustainable option—but it's not always practical, especially when you host a big gathering. Instead of tossing all those paper plates, brightly colored napkins, and plastic cups straight in the landfill, opt for something a little greener. Pick up some compostable plates, napkins, straws—and why not try edible cups, while you’re at it? Grab recyclable forks, knives, and spoons made from post-consumer recycled plastic, and you’ll be all set for your most eco-friendly (and fabulous!) shindig yet.
