Reducing waste, one children’s party at a time

Children’s parties can produce a lot of unnecessary waste. But one local resident is helping to tackle this by loaning out tableware and cutlery to families.

Pass the Party BS3 was set up in July by local resident Anna Thake-Adams, with the aim of helping people in area to reduce waste at their children’s parties.

Anna said: “Reducing the use of single use items, particularly plastic, has been on people’s minds in the last year or so, and the more I learned about the impact of our throwaway society on our environment, the less I could enjoy parties and events that would send huge bin bags to landfill.”

A number of Pass the Party services have been set up across the country, but Anna believes this is the first one to be established in Bristol.

Families can loan plates, cups, bowls and cutlery for up to 30 children for free from the ‘Pass the Party – BS3’ Facebook page.

A small charity donation is always welcome.
