We are delighted to announce The Party Kit Network have joined the One Earth Show as an Official Champion!
“We are excited to be joining One Earth as a champion for their event. Making sustainable lifestyle changes accessible is at the very core of our mission, so it’s great that the One Earth Show is designed to do just that.” Isabel Mack, founder of The Party Kit Network.
Disposable plates have become the norm at kids parties; they are colourful and make tidying up a piece of cake. But, for a party of 30 children, that is an average of 100 single use items going straight to landfill. That's a lot of waste. The Party Kit Network offers a waste free solution.
Isabel explains: “A party kit is a box of reusable tableware and decorations hired out to the local community as an easy way to significantly reduce waste at parties. It's often cheaper to hire a party kit than buying the equivalent disposables and more convenient, with everything needed for a party in a box.”
There’s a rapidly growing community of people across the UK who provide party kits as a practical alternative to disposables, helping to make parties a little more sustainable. The not-for-profit network works together to promote the concept of switching reusables and help people find their local party kit via the website. All the kits are run independently by individuals, school PTA groups, lending libraries, small party businesses and zero waste stores.
The Party Kit Network can now save over 1 million single-use items from landfill every year.
