Environment and Ethics

At Dr Zigs we believe sustainability is key. From supporting and engaging with our local community, to growing our business in a sensible way.

And we are all about doing our bit to save the planet. Which means that when you buy our products or hire us for an event, you know you will be doing your bit too.

From sourcing FSC wood for our Bubble Wands, fairtrade cotton for our Bubble Wicks, and ever purer and greener ingredients for our Bubble Brew, you can trust that we are on the case.

Oh, and of course we love recycling, so for every empty bottle of Dr Zigs Bubble Mix you return, you’ll get a whole £3 off your next bottle too!

And for all those times when we just can’t be as environmentally friendly as we would like? Well, we’re planting trees! We aim to be a carbon neutral company – which means each little bit of your Dr Zigs Dragon Bubbles comes with that added lovely bubbly feeling of goodness. Enjoy!
