The Bubble is a non-profit NGO which organises local events in support of humanitarian and environmental causes. The Bubble focuses on including everyone and is aimed at people of all ages and from all walks of life, particularly those that enjoy simple natural experiences, seeking to immerse themselves in new adventures. In line with this mantra, the NGO organises a non-profit weekend festival at the end of Summer to celebrate life.
The Bubble Festival will sweep you out of the city and into a stunning natural environment, immersing you in an atmosphere of learning, creativity, fun, relaxation, charity, sharing of new ideas and awakenings to what’s going on outside your Bubble!
Sustainability at The Bubble
One of the key aims of the Bubble is to raise awareness about sustainability and minimise the impact our daily activities have on our planet. This is a “leave no trace” event, where people are encouraged to separate their resources and carry their own drinking flasks. All paper such as signage, napkins and toilet roll are from recycled sources. Global Green Events resources collection points allow participants to ensure that the resources they use are reused and up-cycled post festival. Our Environmental Policy helps the Bubble community come together to make a difference.
Volunteers will be encouraged to join the Global Green Events team in the pre and post festival elements of the above to learn first-hand about sustainability and to take away some practical knowledge to share with others.
Our dream is to have compost toilets and example grey water systems in the future with good funding support.
Workshops in the Burst will educate and empower people to get more sustainable at home!
Our Environmental Policy
- Packaging should be reduced at source, with conscious product buying. Discard all packaging before arriving on site.
- No plastic disposables on site! All disposables are compostable. Cups (yes cups!), plates, and all food leftovers into compost. Simple.
- Bring your own container/flask/mug for food and drinks.
- Use the right bins. Your resources will be recycled and reused!
- Cigarette ends go into the butt bins!
- Metal cans are permitted. Plastic or glass bottles are not permitted to be brought on site.
- All cleaning or washing products used on site must be biodegradable. The land is sensitive.
- Any used water only goes into sewerage systems on site. Do not pour used water directly onto the land as any contaminants have a big effect on the limited water supply and the runoff goes directly to the sea.
- Carshare or catch the bus! Reduce your impact before you get on site!
- The Bubble operates a “Leave No Trace” philosophy.
- Burst Your Bubble by educating yourself, encouraging others and joining the Global Green Events team!
