How to Plan the Best Green Party EVER this Christmas and New Years Eve!

A little party never hurt nobody- but some parties sure contribute to killing the Earth. Here are our tips and tricks to have a sustainable party this holiday season.

In our last Conscious Christmas guide in 2018, we’re here to prove that you can have fun while being sustainable, too. Because hey- the party’s gonna last forever if both you and the planet live to tell the tale! Also, we’re here to prove that planning a sustainable Christmas or New Year’s Eve party isn’t anywhere near as difficult or as expensive as everyone makes it out to be. It’s as easy as taking the smallest of #LittleGreenSteps to make a conscious choice about what you’re buying. And without further ado, here’s a checklist of everything you need to throw the meanest, greenest Conscious Christmas party.

The NIBBLES 
Nuts
If you are looking for nutty goodness, look no further than these divine cashew treats from Bali Mana & Bali East Cashews. They have flavours for all taste buds like cacao, chili lime, salted caramel popcorn, and chocolate caramel popcorn. They want to make sustainable snacks affordable to everyone while supporting local farmers from around Bali. Their products have no additives and everything they produce is non-GMO, gluten-free, and vegan. Nothing is wasted, they even use cashew shells for fuel their factory.
Snacks & Bread 
If you are looking for homegrown Singapore snacks, check out The Whole Kitchen’s range of gourmet, wholesome and healthy food. They want you to feel your best through healthy yet delicious food. From energy balls, chocolate peanut butter cakes, fruit cakes, creative nut mixes, and even gluten-free bouncy breads – they have a little something for your sweet and carb craving party needs. You can rest assure they only use 100% natural ingredients, that are free of gluten, additives, and always low in sugar, from natural unrefined sources. Available in Singapore.
Coconut Chips & Bites 
Let the magic of coconuts be the talk of the party with Coco Paradise’s healthy, delicious and nutrient-packed coconut-based nibbles. You are what you eat (or so they say), so why not pack your body with a little magic from wholesome coconuts. They have a seasonal apple, cinnamon, raspberry coconut bites, coco-bars, coconut different flavoured chips, bites, and toasted caramel coco-bites. Not only are the vegan-friendly, but they are also honest about their ingredients which are free from harmful chemicals and misleading additives. Available in Hong Kong and Singapore.

Coffee, Tea & Juices 

You can’t just leave your guests thirsty if they don’t drink milk or alcohol (or are on reactive meds). Les Vergers du Mekong works with the local growers in Vietnam to produce the finest coffee, the rarest tea and the most luscious juices. They work on complete traceability to control the quality of the farm, the crop and the ingredients, and seek to create and promote great-tasting, healthier food & drinks.

The DESSERT 

Cake 

We think that a party that has no cake involved isn’t a party worth going to. Oh My Goodness is a homegrown Singapore food company specialising in making moist and delicious gluten-free, dairy-free & refined sugar-free food. Their cakes, breads and cookies are naturally better for you without tasting like chalk or feeling like cardboard. Most of its Goodness is completely grain-free and paleo-friendly, too. So no matter the allergies or diet choices of your guests, they’ll all be able to enjoy a slice of greatness.

Fruit 

WHAT’sIN specializes in delivering surprise fresh fruit baskets to doorsteps of families, individuals, and corporations. They believe that everyone should have access to fresh and tasty seasonal fruits, at a reasonable price. So if you’ve got a bunch of kiddos whose parents won’t let them have cake or some elderly folks who could always do with a vitamin fill, you’ve gotta make sure you got the good fruit.

The NECESSITIES
