Zero Waste Birthday Parties brought to you by Trash Puppets
Want a birthday party that is unique and fun, whilst also caring for Mother Earth?Now there's Trash Puppets 'Zero Waste Birthday Parties'!
We can host 'Zero Waste Birthday Parties' at Trash HQ, The Eco Centre or Your Home!
Incorporating our awesome Trash Puppets Puppet Making Workshop our parties show guests how to make their very own puppet using recycled / reused materials. Each partygoer leaves with an original, working puppet as a souvenir from the party.
If you cant make it to Trash HQ in the Docklands or the Eco Centre in St Kilda, we'd love to come to you!
Why ‘Zero Waste’?
Zero Waste add's two more R's to ‘Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’ - 'Rethink' and 'Refuse'.
What could you say 'no thanks' to today that saves landfill and wasted resources?

A little more on ‘Zero Waste’
Zero Waste means we Refuse and Rethink disposable items at our parties. No plastic bags, no single-use plates/ decorations/ prizes/ loot bags etc.
We "wash against waste" - Providing you with reusable servingware means doing a few dishes at the end of the party, but it helps reduce reliance on disposable products.
We decorate the room with homemade, reused decorations.
Any single-use items you do bring will be incorporated into the ‘trash pile’ for puppet-making.
