Win a party kit for your school


Party Kits for Schools is an initiative that helps UK school communities access eco-friendly reusable tableware and decorations for parties.

Borrowed for a party and then returned to be used again, the party kit concept is a practical and affordable alternative to single-use items like paper plates and plastic cups.

How it works...


School hosts a party kit


Borrow for a party


Reduce waste & CO2

Nominate your school and they could win a complete party kit to lend out within your local community helping to both reduce waste and raise money for your school.
