After struggling to find fun and non-plastic toys for my daughter's 5th birthday party I decided to find alternative ideas or make my own. I'd given books before, and seeds - this time I wanted classic party bag fillers that were totally plastic free but there were none. The party in question was large - 25 children - and I was determined not to add to the hideous problem of plastic pollution and gifts for the sake of gifts at any cost.
In my mind there needed to be a solution. I launched The Paper Party Bag Shop in Feb 2018 - creating a one-stop shop for non-plastic, eco-friendly and, most importantly, fun goodies and bags to the ubiquitous take home party bags at kids birthday parties.
We use no plastic in any of our toys and the packaging is made from potato/corn starch and is compostable when disposed of correctly. Our packaging design is simple, modern and gender neutral - the focus is the toy.
So, grown-ups, I hope you like them - buy them, give them, and enjoy knowing that they are all thoughtful gifts that won't cost the earth and end up in a land fill or ocean somewhere.*click on photo to learn more.
BAYITH was born in early 2016 in the kitchen of a Brooklyn, New York city apartment. Since the beginning, the emphasis has been on thoughtful design details and sustainable sourcing. Each piece is inspired by timeless aesthetics, natural elements, and the celebration of gathering together for events big and small. It’s no coincidence that BAYITH means “of the home (and community)” in Hebrew. Years ago, founder and designer Catherine Schiff shifted her focus from fashion to table textiles because she loved the sense of community involved in dinner parties. We not only love to talk about growing a sustainable business, but we also try to walk the walk. We start by using seed paper and recycled paper in our packaging, hiring local NY seamstresses, expanding our offering to rentals, and we're always looking for ways to improve our footprint. For 2018, we are aiming to donate 10% of our profits to an organization focused on clean ocean causes. Let us know if there’s an organization in this field you really admire. *click on photo to learn more.

Beautiful and 100% biodegradable wedding confetti petals from the Wyke Manor Estate in Worcestershire.
Our Flower Field is open to visit each summer! The Real Flower Petal Confetti Co was established in 1997, after Charles saw petals fall from the bouquet he was carrying for his wife - such pretty and natural confetti - perfect for weddings! The Wyke Manor Estate is now the British centre for real flower confetti, and hundreds of thousands of petals are handpicked each summer.
Our confetti has been used at the weddings of celebrities and Royalty. Madonna – Catherine Zeta Jones – Olympic Champion Jessica Ennis all used our petals for their confetti moment, and William and Harry bought our petals to throw over Charles and Camilla at their wedding. They all chose our confetti for it's unique beauty and ability to biodegrade as naturally as blossom. *
100% Biodegradable Petal Confetti grown on the Shropshire Petals farm. Wedding confetti. Real petal confetti. All petals are eco-friendly, real petals, dye-free and top quality. Originally specialists in dried flowers, Shropshire Petals has diversified into growing and producing wheat for beautiful wheat arrangements and of course natural petal confetti for weddings.
As part of the farming community, we always recognise the benefits of growing sustainable, environmentally friendly products whilst maintaining a farming practice that's kinder to the countryside... so in 2005 we decided to launch our natural petal confetti. Our Shropshire farm has fields and fields of delphiniums, cornflowers, calendula and more. All of our petals are 100% natural, biodegradable and eco-friendly. They are dried naturally, which keeps their colours beautifully and no dyes are ever added.
Celebrating everyday with recycled materials!
“Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can.”
Like many Etsy shop owners, artists and people everywhere, this Arthur Ashe quote defines the beginning of Smiley Wileys.
When the little Smiley Wileys were littler and still wanted big basement birthday parties, it went without saying that we would make our own decorations. And so, using what we had on hand (Books! Lots and lots of books!) we began creating decorations for the many different themed parties the little smiley ones requested: Rockstar, Underwater Princess Mermaid Castle, Halloween Costume Parties, Backyard Camping Almost-Sleepover, Super Hero!, Crazy Neon Circus Carnival… to name a few. Then friends started asking for decorations, and one thing led to another and all of a sudden I had an Etsy shop!

Some of my favorite words to describe my life and my passions, family and Mabel Lane Boutique.
Each flower has been touched, cut and shaped with these 2 hands and then shipped with pride, even upcycled boxes. I try to keep eco-thoughtfulness in mind with every aspect of my business. When I buy new material I look into each company to make sure they are ethically based and eco-friendly. I reuse boxes whenever possible and I head to the library and comic book store where they eagerly give me books and comics that cannot be checked out or sold due to minimal damage. I am constantly adding more unique flowers from alternative materials. From rustic burlap roses made from upcycled coffee bags to vintage hymnals repurposed into gentle roses. All flower stems are made from upcycled wire scraps that my construction husband gets for me before they head to the scrap pile.
Eco Glitter fun was born from two fun loving party animals, whose mission is to bring responsible sparkles and plastic pollution awareness to the world. We sell biodegradable glitter pots and sets online, via retailers and we partner with brands, events and influencers - all in aid of spreading the 'reduce plastic' message.
We sell our biodegradable glitter in plastic free packaging and strive to reduce the amount of plastic used in every aspect of our business.
We strongly believe that we need to protect our precious earth from further damage and do everything we can to reverse the harm that 100 years of plastic has created. We hope you use our glitter to help educate people on how to reduce their plastic consumption.
Our eco glitter is made from a biodegradable cellulose film. This means that once its in the natural environment, microbes consume it, causing no harm to Mother Earth. We are official Bioglitter® licensed resellers.
