About Me

My name is Peter and I'm from Northampton, England.

I moved to Ireland in 2018 after meeting my wife on the finish line of the 2016 New York marathon.

We now live in Glasnevin, Dublin and

About Green Bubble

We are proud to say that every part of our process creates a positive impact, either environmentally or socially.

Green Bubble have teamed up with Sunflower Recycling.  They are a social economy business working with long term unemployed individuals, their aim is to train and progress them into employment.

Firstly, we collect used bubble wrap from two large furniture warehouses in Dublin.  By collecting this ‘waste’, we are diverting it away from incineration and export which helps to reduce carbon emissions.We then ensure that the bubble wrap is clean and dry, remove any excess tape, and then finally roll it back up into various lengths.  We currently sell the used material to self-storage units, artists, ceramicists, SMEs, and people moving homes. 

 

We have also worked closely with the Rediscovery Centre, The Earthy Marketplace, and

Dublin/Fingal County Council to connect and educate local businesses in material reuse. 

Green Bubble are also a member of CRNI.

To date, we have diverted over 6000m sq. (over three tonnes) away from incineration and recycling -

that's also 6000m sq. of virgin bubble wrap that hasn't been consumed.

We hope to continue our valued partnership with Sunflower Recycling and by doing this, we are having an impact socially on individuals, reducing our CO2 footprint whilst adding value to materials already in use.
