TalkTalk is giving away free bottles of ‘carbon-neutral’ champagne to bubbly fans in Manchester city centre tomorrow.

In a bid to promote “the environmental benefits of switching to full fibre”, TalkTalk – which is the UK’s largest value-for-money connectivity provider – has decided to celebrate by giving out free bottles of champagne to those who pledge to reduce their carbon footprint and switch to full fibre broadband before Valentine’s Day next week.

According to TalkTalk, by making the changeover from standard broadband to full fibre, customers can reduce their lifetime carbon emissions by up to 565kg.

That is the equivalent of sending 4,036 Valentine’s Day cards.

So, what exactly do you need to do to get your hands on some free “eco-friendly bubbles” then? Well, TalkTalk explains that you’ll just need to “show the planet some love” and pledge to reduce your carbon footprint by visiting TalkTalk’s “human-powered” vending machine near the clock tower at the Great Northern Warehouse tomorrow from 12pm.


The pop-up will be dispensing carbon-neutral champagne up until 2pm to celebrate the environmental benefits of switching from standard broadband to full fibre.

Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s pop-up event, Will Ennett – Head of Sustainability at TalkTalk – said: “To spread the love in Manchester ahead of Valentine’s Day, we’re encouraging people to think about the small changes they can make to help reduce their carbon footprint, such as switching from standard broadband to full fibre.


“Head down to the Great Northern Warehouse this Thursday lunchtime to find out how the move to full fibre will help to reduce carbon emissions.

“Plus, you can receive a bottle of carbon-neutral bubbly on us.”

TalkTalk has said that it will be operating a ‘challenge 25’ policy on the promotion, so you’re advised to bring ID along with you to the pop-up event to avoid disappointment, and you can find out more about the ‘Full Fibre’ offerings here.
