Hope this is in the right forum...
It is time for my baby's first birthday and we want to start a precedent of having "green" parties for him. We would like to encourage people to purchase second-hand or otherwise sustainable gifts, and/ or donate to an environmental cause in his name, and use reusable/ recyclable wrapping. I am having trouble wording my invitation. I would like to politely encourage people to make green choices without feeling obligated. My dh feels like it sounds too "preachy" and I tend to agree that comes off as self-righteous. This is what I have so far:
I can't believe it's been a year already! (DS) will be 1 year old on December _.
And we would love for you to come celebrate with us.
We are attempting to start a tradition of having a green (earth-friendly) party by making as little garbage and
using as few resources as possible.
To this end, we welcome sustainable or second-hand books, clothes, and toys, donations in (DS) name to an
environmental cause, and reused/ recyclable gift wrap.
