Eco-Friendly Baby Shower Ideas
There are lots of green baby shower themes but we have some eco friendly baby shower ideas here that are tailor made for the mommy who is dedicated to saving the planet. This shower is for a mommy who is going green by eliminating as many toxic chemicals from her home and certainly by surrounding her new baby with organic baby bedding and using as many natural materials in decorating the nursery as she possibly can.
So how do you throw a baby shower for such a green-minded individual? Here are a few ideas for throwing an eco friendly baby shower that will get you started.
RECYCLED BABY SHOWER INVITATIONS
Only baby shower invitations printed on 100% recycled paper will do here. Your wording should make it clear that this is an "earth friendly" event and that organic baby items chemical free materials (no toxic chemical dyes) would be appreciated. Remind them that their wrapping paper should be as free of chemicals as the eco friendly baby shower gifts that they buy and preferably made from recycled paper.
ECO FRIENDLY BABY SHOWER DECORATIONS and DECOR
It would be impossible to get too much greenery (with no pesticides on board, of course) in your baby shower venue. Speaking of venues, the perfect location for an eco friendly baby shower would be a natural setting like your favorite wildflower park.
Healthy snacks like fresh fruit and nuts should be on the menu. Avoid processed foods and use the occasion to prove that organic foods DO taste better. Skip the sodas and bring out homemade teas and lemonade sweetened with natural ingredients.
Perhaps the best of all our eco-friendly baby shower ideas is to get physical! Even pregnant chicks need to stay active and gentle exercise (with her OB’s permission of course) so no Bingo or word games for this shower.
ECO-FRIENDLY BABY SHOWER FAVORS
Fill a favor bag (that you made yourself from organic cotton or a paper bag made of recycled paper) with bars of homemade soap, lotions or baked goods to show your guests how much you appreciate their participation. If your busy schedule doesn’t allow for natural, handmade favors visit a crafts fair and buy some samples from a trusted vendor.
