About Sustainable Party
We are a start-up internet-based company that aims to spread the tools to make any party or event more eco-friendly and socially responsible. Our website features a guide for throwing eco-events, as well as an online store to purchase party supplies that we screen for eco-attributes. We are a certified B Corporation and a founding member of the Sustainable Business Network of NYC. Our main office is in Soho in NYC, however our team can be based anywhere in the United States, as we use the internet to bring us together. We are a triple-bottom-line company that focuses on environmental and social as well as financial returns. And this should not be overlooked: We love a good party!

About the Internships
In our energetic start-up environment, you will be interfacing with executive-level decision makers and therefore will have a real impact in shaping and building the company. You will be expected to work part-time or full-time and independently (location is flexible) yet connect to the team through online conferencing. Therefore you must be able to work well on your own and take initiative to push your projects forward. You will be expected to help formulate plans and creative strategies, and then to implement ideas, involving the support team as needed. Internships are unpaid, except in the instance of sales commission.
