Meet Susty Party, Eco-Friendly Paper Goods

Emily Doubilet & Jessica Holsey founded Susty Party, a sustainable paper goods business, in 2012. We have been long-time fans, but this is our first time really getting to know the story behind this rad biz. Susty goods are a great addition to your usual party rentals from places like Event rentals in Roseville, CA.

Susty Party creates beautiful, sustainable, compostable party tableware made in partnership with non-profit factories who employ the blind.

When did you decide you wanted to open your own company?

In 2009, Jessica and I (Emily) met at a party and both were a place to make a career change. I’d been doing a lot of entertaining in my free time, hosting plays and burlesque shows in Brooklyn, and was tired of all the unattractive disposables that just piled on the landfill. It wasn’t super easy to find environmental alternatives back then and the ones I could find were just brown. 🙁

Jess was interested in getting involved in a social enterprise after learning about them through her Wall Street banking job.

She also has a passion for cooking, entertaining and the environment, and was really excited about jumping out of corporate world and into something self made.

How did you come up with the name of your business?

It’s a play on partying in a sustainable way – “Susty” comes from the word sustainable!

What is your favorite part about what you do?

Getting to be creative throughout the whole process – from coming up with product ideas, to finding the raw material & manufacturers, to marketing them!

It’s so fun to entertain in your home because you can be really creative and invite people to experience your traditions – plus you can bring friends together! We like to say it’s about connection, not perfection.
