Eco-friendly Party Supplies in Brazil :)

Great news!
After reading about all the recent posts on Brazilian birthday parties in our favorite blogs, this post came in a very appropriate time.
I just read on my great friend Ana's Blog "BOLO, BALAO, DIVERSAO" Eco friendly ( Green Line ) party supplies now available in Brazil, the flatware, straws, plates, and cups are made from cool eco friendly materials obtained from the left overs of the Sugar Cane Industry and the by products of Corn, they will completely dissolve after 180 days in the land fills, great news, we do need all the help we can get in my humble opinion :)
You can find it at Walmart, Pao de Acucar and Extra Hipermercados ( Sao Paulo), please check your local retailers for further availability.
Take a look at Ana's GREAT blog below or you can reach her thru the link above:

Dica EventoVerde: Descartáveis Eco

Finalmente temos aqui no Brasil uma linha de materiais para festas que atende a um dos requisitos essenciais do conceito EventoVerde.


A Regina Festas acaba de lançar a linha Green Line, com pratos, copos e talheres descartáveis feitos de matéria-prima compostável, à base de bagaço de cana e amido de milho. Isso significa que ao final da festa poderemos descartar esses itens diretamente no lixo orgânico, sem peso na consciência. Em contato com o solo eles irão se decompor em até 180 dias.


Eu os conheci no WalMart da Granja Viana, mas sei que estão à venda em lojas das redes Pão de Açúcar e Extra (em São Paulo).


Por ser uma novidade, o preço ainda não é muito convidativo. Mas, se a ideia é realmente tornar nossas festas mais sustentáveis, acredito que vale a pena o investimento. E, quem sabe, com o aumento na demanda, logo venham a tornar-se mais acessíveis a todos que desejam festejar com responsabilidade ecológica.

Oh no. I definitely don't need another excuse to drink wine.
Great stuff for the birthday parties!

B.A.B.,

No kidding! Now we have a good (excuse) reason to drink more wine and help the enviroment ;)
I have seen strawberry and blueberry containers made from Corn by product here in the US.
Haven't seen the plates, cups, straws yet, but I am sure I could find them at Wholefood ( for a small fortune )...
I will look around just out of curiosity.
