A plastic-free vision
Millions of plastic bottles a day go unrecycled & end up polluting the oceans, impacting the wildlife & in turn the wider community. By the end of 2018 bottled water will no longer be supplied to our clients in plastic. Our journey continues with a number of new initiatives against plastic in the pipeline. We have also stopped the use of plastic straws & are now only purchasing biodegradable paper straws in our venues.
A breath of fresh air
We measure the CO2 that our delivery vehicles emit on journeys to events & turn them into trees. In 2017 our journeys created 125m2 of newly planted woodland. We worked with The Woodland Trust to plant the trees in Heartwood Forest in Hertfordshire. Once matured, every tree planted can absorb roughly 48 pounds of CO2 a year. This year, we will again be teaming up with The Woodland Trust to reinforce this same initiative.
Every drop counts
We provide Life Water to clients throughout the UK & partner with the charity Drop4Drop. For every bottle of Life Water sold, Drop4Drop gives at least 1,000 litres of clean drinking water to a community in need. Through our partnership with charity Drop4Drop we completed our first project to provide access to clean drinking water by building a well supplying over 400 people in the village of Kiguli, located in the Mpigi District of Central Uganda.
Good food for everyone
Millions of people in the UK are living in poverty & it is approximated 650,000 tonnes of good food goes to waste. Since the beginning of 2018, we have partnered with Plan Zheroes, a social network where relationships are built between food businesses & charities, to enable surplus food to be passed on to the homeless.
Wonky veg champions
Farmers in the UK are getting up to 10 tonnes of produce rejected every week for being imperfect. We are working with our fruit & vegetable suppliers, Fisher & Woods to take on ‘wonky’ vegetables with a dash of creativity and planning, incorporated them into soups, stocks & salads. This has not only massively reduced food wastage but also extensively lowered our carbon footprint producing this food in the first place.
