It’s well-known that events tend to produce a significant amount of waste. From now-defunct props and structures, to plastic cups; what is left over can be astonishing, and since we’re all far more aware of what this means for the planet, we should be doing all we can to reduce pollution.
With environmentalists continuing to make headlines, highlighting the urgency of action needed, what better time to review the impact your event may have. Hiring in props and equipment is one way you can be certain that your carbon footprint is reduced, without having to compromise on style, quality and convenience.
Say No To Landfill
Event trends don’t stand still – what’s unique and on-trend one year will be passé and overused by the next, so it stands to reason that your event styling needs to keep up. What that can mean is lots of single-use items that end up being thrown out after an event, adding to the landfill crisis.
If only there was a way that you could use relevant, up-to-date props and structures and not have to worry about creating waste…
The Upcycle Struggle
We’re huge fans of upcycling. What’s not to love about taking something old and defunct and creating something incredible? The trouble is upcycling takes an awful lot of time, resources and skill – something many companies don’t have the capacity for. Did you know that we restore and upcycle pieces ourselves? Our talented team have been responsible for some pretty spectacular renovation projects, just take a look at these;
Some that think hiring in means you lose your identity. We’re here to call fake news on that! We specialise in creating personalised styling to structures and bars so your brand and story are evident. Take a look at the container bar we used at an event for Double Dutch. In less than two weeks we managed to build a structure that not only reflected the brand’s ethos but also engaged their guests. The colour blocking and vinyl slogans were on brand and the bar was used at a number of festivals across the UK.
Zero Waste, Zero Hassle
Our crew turn up at your site with everything you need. They unload for you and if you choose, they can set up too. How’s that for stress-free event planning?
