I wonder if I managed to shrink my footprint on this planet over the past year.
In my home we use cloth rags in the place of paper towels, we recycle, and we also compost. I am proud to have made my daily life a greener experience to start to make a difference every day, including Earth Day!
This Spring I am faced with a new challenge, as I am getting ready to throw a sizable party: a pot-luck gathering to celebrate the house I just bought! Everyone will bring a dish to share, and I, the hostess, will be supplying the dish ware. I think back on all those times when I might have broken my own eco rules to use paper or plastic disposable plates and cringe.

Lucky for me, I work for Luna Bazaar, sister company of Cultural Intrigue, where we strive to keep our impact on the environment to a minimum. Our awareness of environmental issues largely influences our product designs and business decisions. This is why we don't sell Sky Lanterns. We are committed to using sustainably harvested and renewable resources whenever possible such as bamboo, rice paper, and recycled materials. In our shipping department, more than 80% of our packing materials are reused or recycled.
In recent years we've launched new lines of eco friendly products for wedding, party and home, including Recycled Glass Vases, Candle Holders and Napkin Rings, U.S.A. made Compostable Paper Straws, and our newest addition: Compostable Wooden Picnic Ware, providing elegant disposable dinnerware alternative that includes Biodegradable Palm Leaf and Bamboo Plates with an accompanied selection of Compostable Wooden Utensils.

With our new eco friendly dinnerware in mind, I see this as a wonderful opportunity to make one more step towards a “greener lifestyle”. The days of chemically dyed party plates, and plastic utensils is over. Our unique, eco friendly party supplies offer a staple alternative for every environmentally conscious host and hostess out there.
Another cool thing about Luna Bazaar's Decor: You can color match Paper Lanterns, Tissue Paper Pom Poms, Fabric and Paper Parasols and Hand Fans with our eco friendly Paper Straws to beautifully tie your whole event together!
