Eco-taining with Talking Tables

Posted by on

Eco-taining, or planning a sustainable table as it’s more commonly known, is especially creative and rewarding and a great talking point for guests.

Here are four tips for putting one together...

Reusable items are great for a table. Items that are designed to last are often as valid as single use recyclable ones, especially if you already have them. So dust off that crockery that’s in the back of your kitchen cupboard. And glass candle holders can be brought out and used again and again.

Shop with local small businesses where possible for seasonal food and flowers. Ask where they source their produce. 

Ditch the plastic. Our napkins are home recyclable and come in card packaging. Some are home compostable too. Plus we’re offsetting them with tree planting.

Charity finds like this tablecloth are a great option. Charity shops give products a new lease of life while also fundraising for great causes. And it works both ways. If you’ve exhausted the use of your after dinner game – one of our FSC* accredited ones of course – why not take it to your local charity shop so it can be enjoyed by someone else.

*FSC accreditation means that the paper used in a product comes from sustainably managed forests.
