Ever Green

go green!

Chairman of the party. Hostess with the mostest. Mother Nature.

That’s you (yes, all of the above).

Should you want to celebrate such dynamism, do so with GreenPartyGoods. Sourced by Burlingame-based mom Carole Soss, the planet-friendly homewares and toys — suitable for any social occasion — are as green as they come.

We’re talking hard-to-find eco-conscious tableware made of sugarcane, corn, or bamboo (ideal for picnics); recycled and vegetable-dyed toys; beeswax birthday candles; biodegradable streamers; and tablecloths made from recycled material fabricated in a solar-powered plant in Germany — all from a mere $1.99.

Think it’s a party worth supporting?

It sure gets our vote.
