Our website features a guide for throwing eco-events, as well as an online store to purchase party supplies that we screen for eco-attributes. We are a certified B Corporation and a founding member of the Sustainable Business Network of NYC. Our main office is in Soho in NYC, however our team can be based anywhere in the United States, as we use the internet to bring us together. We love a good party!
