The Party Company goes Green!
We know our customers care as much as we do about waste and the impact it has on the environment .
So this year we have made a commitment to improving what we do and to reduce the amount of waste that we produce .
Throughout 2019 we will be looking for ways in which we can reduce the impact our products and services have on the environment. We have enlisted the help of an ethical business coach to help us on journey to a greener, more environmentally friendly future.
We are starting by reviewing our products to make sure as many as possible can be recycled or are compostable.We are aiming to recycle at least 90% of the waste we produce. We will be producing guidelines which we will send out with every order informing our customers how they should dispose of their items and finally we are looking to work with Trees for Life by joining their tree planting scheme.
The first steps on our journey are already in place, all our balloon ribbon is now fully biodegradable and compostable. This means such a lot to us as standard balloon ribbon cannot be recycled and usually ends up in landfill or the wider environment where it can cause damage and injury to wildlife. The new ribbons are made from natural materials and look super stylish as well as being environmentally friendly, a winning combination in our book.
ALL our balloon packaging is now fully recyclable and/or biodegradable, the box, tape and tissue, no plastic at all which is great news.
We also send out a card with every balloon showing customers how to dispose of the product responsibly.
We will keep you updated on the progress of our green journey through the blog.
We are really looking forward to this challenge, our planet needs help now and we all need to get involved, small changes do add up!
