Love parties? Hate waste? Planning a Plastic-Free Zero-Waste party?
We were chatting about this idea of a Zero-Waste party kit – and lending table cloths, bunting and party dinnerware to friends and lo-and-behold – it’s already ‘a thing’!
So, if like us, you have ever despaired at the amount of waste generated at parties then this network of reusable party kits is for you!
The Party Kit Network is a group of people across the UK who lend out reusable partyware and decorations so that your party can be a little ‘greener’. Although there are options for biodegradable plates and bowls, the idea of RE-USING and renting party kits is brilliant!
The Party Kit Network was founded to help you find your local kit and to support all the amazing people who run the kits.
Be more sustainable by switching to reusables
A huge amount of energy and water goes into the manufacture and transportation of disposable plates and other partyware.
Disposable partyware is difficult to recycle and is usually contaminated by food waste, meaning it just ends up going in the bin.
Making your own bunting is fun (and easy – click here) however, if you don’t have time, you can rent that too!
Opt for reusable bamboo straws instead of plastic straws at your Plastic-Free Zero-Waste party. If you want to take it a step further, theotherstraw offers customized bamboo straws for parties.
By switching from disposables to reusables for your next party you could save an average of 90 single-use items from landfill. We think is pretty awesome!
Hire a party kit for a fun-filled party
Each party kit contains everything you need for a colourful fun-filled party without the waste.
Party kits include plates, cups, bowls, cutlery, jugs and more. The eco-friendly party kits often come with decorations and optional extras such as table linen and even reusable bags for a classic game of pass-the-parcel.
Most of the zero-waste party kit local organisations can provide a washing up service, so you get one of the benefits of using disposables but with zero the waste.
Find your local party kit
Simply find your local kit, hire for your next party and then return to be used again and again. They can also make suggestions for plastic-free party bags and biodegradable balloons too.
Most kits charge a small fee with some raising funds for local schools and charitable causes.
Together Party Kit Network can make your next party a little more eco-friendly!
