We love smart ideas that we can also file under “Mitzvah-Nomics.” And this one is so smart and may save you a fortune. A big thanks to Mitzvah Mom Elyn for sending it in!
UsedEventStuff.com is the Event Industry’s Sustainable Site started by event planners who wanted to “make a difference in our market and in our world.” Their tagline is: Recycle, Reuse, Reconsider.
They write on their site that they see the waste that happens in the event planning industry: “beautiful, usable goods thrown out at curbside at the end of the night.” They realized that the cost of storage is the real culprit so they created a Website where you can go online to buy, sell and search for “used event stuff.”
Here are examples of some great items on their website:
Organza Chair Ties
Pink votives/bud vases
Tall Beaded Candle Holders
Large Pressed Tin Container
Crystal Globe centerpieces
Moroccan Hand Blown Bottles
