Our top tip for hen night accessories is to find products you can reuse again and again. There are endless amounts of gorgeous décor pieces that you can reuse for your big day or in your new home after the hen do. These saucy and sustainable glass willy straws; balloon frame; and bride eye mask are easily reusable as well as having recyclable packaging. Alternatively, if you do want something that screams hen party, opt for fully recyclable products. Our ‘How well do you know the bride’ cards, photo booth props and hen party bunting are all fully recyclable- product and packaging! Hen night accessories are stereotypically plastic, single use and thrown away after the event. But they don’t have to be, we have loads more guilt-free options in our hen shop.

Other great activities to consider are outdoor and active ones. Old School Sports Day, Silent Disco Adventure and various Water Sports are perfect for a green hen do.

There are so many local independent restaurants and cafes to visit on your hen night.

Not to mention you’ll be supporting small businesses! From afternoon tea to after dinner drinks, it’s not hard to find local establishments that value the environment. Here are examples of independent restaurants, that use local produce, in our top three locations: Liverpool- Pins, Newcastle- SIX, Edinburgh- Le Monde.

Use Green Accommodation
If you do choose to travel to a different city, then choosing a green hotel would be a great option to stay carbon neutral. Malmaison hotels, Roomzzz aparthotels and Motel One hostels all have sustainability policies and pledges. Aparthotels and hen houses are effortlessly eco-friendly too. They mean that instead of staying in separate hotel rooms, increasing waste and resources, the whole group can stay together and do their bit around the house. Staying together will also mean late night chats, whole group pre drinks and everyone will get to know each other better.
