Greener Parties

Americans throw away billions of plastic utensils every year.

Let’s team up to reduce that number. Greener Parties is a free community initiative designed to decrease plastic silverware use.

The idea is simple. All you do is:

  1. Plan a party.
  2. Email us at to check out our set of 14 forks, spoons, and knives and serving utensils. We’ll let you know if they’re available, and if they are, we’ll schedule a time for you to pick them up in S Minneapolis up to three days before your event.
  3. Have a party!
  4. When you’re finished, wash the silverware. You’ll be transporting the silverware in a dishwasher basket that you can easily pop into your dishwasher. Then return it to us up to three days after your event.
  5. Spread the word! We’ll provide you with a small tabletop placard to display at your party if you choose.

Our inventory:

We currently have a set of 14 forks, spoons, and knives and serving utensils. We’re always looking for donations! Our wish list includes gently used stainless steel silverware, serving dishware and utensils, melamine plastic dishes (for durability and ease of transport), and reusable party decorations. If you’d like to donate any of these items to Greener Parties, please email
