The coronavirus pandemic has turned our lives upside down, but it should not stop us from wanting to make a positive change.
Our planet parties have moved online, to ensure that we can still help the planet while enjoying the company of friends and a glass of bubbly.
The same great businesses, the same effective change, the same good time, the same positive outcome... just at a safe distance!
Who are we?
At Sustainabubbles, we aim to help people live more sustainable lives over a glass of fizz. Reducing pollution can save money, boost our health, and feel really good. We believe it’s best done together. We are a non-profit organisation funded by referral fees from partner companies – any profits go back into running more parties and helping people help the planet
What is a sustainabubbles planet party?
Most people want to do the right thing, but sometimes it is hard to know what that is, or how to do it. So, we have researched the most effective steps you can take to reduce your climate emissions and have partnered with fantastic companies who can make that possible. At a Planet Party, each guest can reduce their carbon dioxide pollution by at least a tonne a year
Why a virtual party?
The coronavirus pandemic has turned our lives upside down, but it should not stop us from wanting to make a positive change - in fact, it seems to have done quite the opposite.
During lockdown we have had the time to step back from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives to reflect on what our ‘normal’ had become – for many, we realised how unsustainable it was. From clear Venetian canals to lions dosing on roadsides, it has been proven to us that given the opportunity, nature will always prevail. So, we are trying to help people make their new normal, a better normal.
Therefore, our parties have moved online, to ensure that we can still help the planet while enjoying the company of friends and a glass of bubbly.
The same great businesses, the same effective change, the same good time, the same positive outcome… just at a safe distance!
How does it work?
Our virtual parties are led by one of our carbon coaches via Zoom, and you can invite up to 20 guests to attend. It will last around 75 minutes, and you will be able to book from a selection of slots, so that you can pick a date and a time that suits you.
Before the day itself, you and your guests will receive all the information you need to attend, along with an exclusive party pack chockablock full of resources to help you on your sustainability journey.
To join the party on the day, all you will have to do is click the zoom link we provide. Simple!
What should I expect from my party?
Our parties are always a fun, relaxed occasion, and a strictly judgement-free zone. No matter where you or your guests are on your sustainability journey, we promise you will never be made to feel guilty or inadequate. We are all part of the problem, and we can all be part of the solution – the parties are just to make that easier.
It is optional but highly recommended to attend with something bubbly in one hand and something tasty in the other. This is a party after all, and what’s a party without some fizz and
vol-au-vents?! We would normally provide the drinks, however due to our inability to meet you in person we can only apologise that this will have to be a BYOB event.
Your carbon coach will introduce themselves, and everyone will be invited, but not pressured, to share their thoughts and feelings on how we can play our part in making positive change. You will be shown a thought-provoking film that guides you through the complexities and contradictions of global warming. Although not a barrel of laughs in itself, it should galvanise you to take carbon-saving action to save our planet!
Our parties are not just for providing information about what actions make a difference, but they are a space where people can put those actions into place. Your carbon coach will be equipped with details of firms and producers, from electric car retailers to green energy companies, tree-planting search engines to electric bikes, to make it as easy as possible for our guests to take the first steps towards a future we will want to turn up to.
