Life in the Green Lane

Environmental journalist Candice Batista shares video clips and eco-savvy advice from her TV show, A Greener Toronto.

Children's’ birthday parties create a great deal of waste. There’s the wrapping paper, the paper plates and cups, the plastic packing that all those toys come in and then there’s the toys themselves. Most kids get at least 25 toys and at least fifty percent of those sit in a cupboard waiting to be played with.

Now, there is a better way to celebrate! With one gift for one cause. Echoage, helps you make your child’s next birthday party more meaningful. 

Instead of bringing wrapped and packaged presents, guests simply rsvp and make secure online contributors that are pooled for the purchase of ONE memorable and to support ONE meaningful cause. 

All you have to do is select an eco-friendly invitation, choose a cause and invite your friends. 

No driving, no shopping and no wrapping. 

I love ECHOAGE, its a unique opportunity for your child to do something extraordinary, to improve the world together. 

Not only will you feel really good, bit so will your child. After all, that’s what giving is all about, isn’t it?
