Eco-Conscious Parties With Greenmunch


With dinnerware made from fallen leaves, cutlery made of biodegradable wood and reusable, stainless steel straws; Greenmunch, a Canadian-based company, is a one-stop-shop for eco-conscious party planners!

Last week I blogged about our Witches’ Ball themed party and many of the items pictured came from Greenmunch. I really wanted to incorporate as many eco-friendly aspects as possible into the party and the products I ordered from helped me to do just that!


Paper straws are all the rage and they’re not only trendy but easy on the environment too. This is good news because traditional plastic straws really suck (pun intended)!

They are usually made of plastic that takes years and years to break down. Plastic straws make up most of the litter on our shorelines and of all the trash to end up in our waters, straws are at the top of the list!

It’s time to say goodbye to plastic straws forever!


Mason jar beverages are also on-trend now. I started using mason jars in place of plastic or paper cups for entertaining a few months ago; like paper straws, they’re much more friendly to the environment as they are made sans plastic and even better, they’re reusable.

Not only does Greenmunch carry Mason jars and other glass bottles for drinking, they also carry a variety of lids to enhance the use of canning jars as beverage holders.


  1. Cuppow Lids:  snap on to most-size jars and create a smaller opening for drinking which makes them great for travel.
  2. Daisy Mason Jar Lids: are what I used for our Witch’s Brew. They’re perfect for keeping a lid on it and the Greenmunch paper straws fit snugly in the centre hole.
  3. Plastisol Lids: regular Mason jar lids but in a variety of colours; perfect for hot fill product sealing or food in a jar gifts. Think bright red for Christmas!
  4. reCap Lid: made with BPA-free recyclable plastic, the reCAP lid can easily be used to shake, pour and store right from your mason jar. It also makes a great spout for spill free drinking.
  5. Mason Jar Tumbler Lid: create a spill free drink with this lid with room for a straw!

Our Witch’s Brew looked great with the Dixie lids and paper straws and the best part is, we really saved some of the trash that would normally end up in the landfill.



Greenmunch offers many more party supply items like garlands, paper pompoms, napkins and more. We also made use of the paper napkins in Vichy Black, the Divine Twine and the Aspenware Wooden Cutlery. We were really impressed with the quality of all the products.


When you think about children’s birthday parties alone and think of each cup, plate, straw, napkin and cutlery used for each guest and multiply that by all the kids in the world having birthday parties, and well, it becomes unimaginable how much landfill waste is created from just this one activity.

So next time you are entertaining whether it be for your child’s party, a Christmas party or whatever, consider using eco-friendly, easy on the environment products like the ones from Greenmunch!

Greenmunch products are not only eco-friendly, but budget-friendly too. And with orders over $99 (which is reasonable for a decent party) shipping in Canada and the US is free!
