Product profile: Party without plastic

Eco party box pompoms

At this time of the year, it seems everyone is having a party of some sort. Unfortunately, many people use disposable crockery and cutlery to avoid washing up and for safer kids’ parties. But those disposable items are usually plastic, and most just end up in landfill.

Frustrated by just this problem, one busy mum decided to start a business solving this dilemma, which is now Eco Party Box, an Australian business devoted solely to providing eco-friendly party supplies.

The range includes sugarcane, bamboo, palm leaf and pine veneer bowls, plates, cups, trays and other food containers; wood and PLA (biodegradable bioplastic) cutlery and skewers; paper straws and recycled paper napkins; even paper and other biodegradable party decorations such as tissue paper pompoms and paper lanterns instead of balloons, reusable chalkboard tags instead of disposables, and a range of party bag fillers made from natural and biodegradable materials.

Also available are party boxes, for kids or adults, which contain all the plates, bowls, cups and cutlery required for up to 25 people.

RRP: from $16.95 for the kids party box (10 people) to $39.95 for any of the adult party boxes (25 people). For more information and to buy, contact Eco Party Box, ph: (08) 8120 0498,,
