Want to go green with your baby shower? Make it a recycled baby shower by requesting that guests bring second-hand gifts, unwrapped. Wonderful toys, clothing and baby gear are available gently used at resale shops, yard sales, and from your own collection at home. And, they work just as well as the new ones.
The green Mommy-to-be will appreciate the reduced impact on our landfills, and you will appreciate the prices. It is truly a win-win!
Skipping the wrapping paper helps, too. To make the shower a “display shower”, guests simply add their unwrapped gifts to a gift table when they enter. Then they are free to enjoy the festive occasion without watching hours of unwrapping.
