Platinum Jubilee Street Party Decorations: Here’s where to buy decorations for your celebrations.
The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee has arrived and you may be busy planning your big weekend celebrations.
But while you’re looking for decorations to make your party shine, it’s also important to think about the impact on the environment.
It is estimated that 1.1 billion single-use plates and 4.25 billion single-use cutlery are used in England each year, of which only 10% are recycled.
So we’ve put together a list of decorations that you can reuse or recycle that will be perfect for your platinum jubilee party.
Instead of plastic streamers, why not try this pretty cotton option instead?
Cotton is biodegradable, in addition to being strong and durable, so it can be reused many times. You can even try making your own garland from old materials you have around the house.
