“No new gifts, please!”

If the eco-friendly mother-to-be is looking to limit her environmental impact, consider asking guests to bring only gift cards or used gifts. Instead of having the guests buy new toys and baby furniture, ask them to bring a thrifted or pre-loved gift. Some ideas might include one of their favorite children’s books, or a lightly used items from Facebook Marketplace.

Decorate the table with items from around your house!

While you may need to purchase some eco-friendly items for your party, another way to throw an eco-friendly bash is by simply using items from around the house to decorate your party.
