Have you ever been to or hosted a kid's birthday party and noticed how much garbage is produced? The paper plates, the cutlery, the cups, the printed napkins, etc. and quickly it becomes obvious that this beautiful rite of passage is a landfill nightmare. Well, there is now a solution and it's right here in the Lower Mainland. Suzanne Bertani is the owner of Green Planet Parties and her goal is to help families lead more sustainable lives and by example we teach our children and their evolving sensibilities about the future of our planet. And this can all be done without sacrificing the joy and fun around the most treasured moments in our lives. Green Planet Parties provides eco-friendly, local and artisanal gifts, biodegradable tableware, reusable decorations and even the much anticipated goodie bags at the end of the party. Who said it wasn't easy being green? Let's celebrate!
