Everything we do at Hubbub aims to inspire ways of living that are good for the environment; it's our charitable purpose. Since 2014 we've been experimenting with ways of doing this, and it's led us to creating everything from seasonal campaigns to smart designs, and from playful installations to some very unique collaborations. Here's how Hubbub is making a difference.

We’re building collaborations

To act on the environment at the scale and pace needed, we believe need to work together. That's why collaboration is at the heart of what we do. So far we've collaborated with over 700 organisations, from international businesses to local authorities and community groups. We’ve created the largest collaborations in environmental sector including bringing together all major coffee cup retailers to collect and recycle 5 million coffee cups in 1 year, and 25 businesses to improve recycling on-the-go in Leeds.

We're inspiring more sustainable ways of living

Together, our campaigns have connected with 15 million people, raising awareness of environmental issues and encouraging people to think differently about an environmental topic. We've inspired 140,508 people to do something and take action, and we've supported 2,122 people to transform their lifestyles towards a more sustainable way of living.

How are we doing this? Here are a few ways - 80 Community Fridges are in the Community Fridge Network each redistributing 32 tonnes of food that would otherwise go to waste, every month. We have five Plastic Fishing punts taking people on trips to fish plastic litter from rivers and raise awareness about how litter ends up in our rivers and oceans. Our Ballot Bins are cutting cigarette butt littering (which is plastic!) across 27 countries. And we can safely say that Pumpkin Rescue and eating pumpkin guts is becoming part of Halloween traditions.

Of course, there are loads more - if you're curious, use the link below to choose a campaign and read more about the difference we're making.

We're creating long lasting change

We’ve worked with international brands to co-design and embed environmental initiatives into their business. We worked with IKEA to design ‘Live LAGOM’, the world's biggest consumer sustainable behaviour change campaign. It’s now a core part of their business model in the UK. We created mothercare’s ‘Gift A Bundle’ campaign, redistributing good quality outgrown baby clothing to families in the UK at Mother’s Day. In its first two years, it supported 8,055 families and redistributed 72,000 items of clothing.

We’re also investing in local community groups to support them in scaling our joint initiatives, making us one of the UK’s larger investors in grassroots activities. Through the Cup Fund, we're funding 12 organisations around the UK to boost cup recycling with grants of up to £100,000 each as well support and advice. And we're enabling communities blighted by fly-tipping to transform their alleyways into places to be proud of through our Love Where You Live campaign.  

Our Waste Less, Save More campaign with Sainsbury's supported 30 communities around the UK with funding and support to tackle food waste and engage thousands of people on the topic.
