The Queen's Platinum Jubilee is here and you might be busy planning your celebrations for the big weekend.

But while you shop around for decorations to make your party sparkle, it's also important to think about the impact on the environment.

An estimated 1.1 billion single-use plates and 4.25 billion items of single-use cutlery are used in England each year, with just 10% recycled.

So, we've come up with a list of decorations that you can re-use or recycle which will be perfect for your Platinum Jubilee bash.


Cotton Bunting

Instead of plastic bunting, why not try this pretty cotton option instead?

Cotton is biodegradable, as well as being strong and durable so can be reused multiple times. You could even try making your own bunting from old materials you have around the house.
