I’m always on the look out for events that are focused on conscious and zero-waste living, as well as opportunities to meet like-minded people like myself looking for a ‘greener’ way of life.
So I’m delighted that Pebble Magazine, the sustainable lifestyle platform, have invited me to their second Pebblefest event.
This one is Pebblefestive -an eco-friendly festival with a Christmas twist!
Pebblefest the Eco Friendly Festival
Pebble’s first festival in April 2019 was a runaway success, and that’s why they’re back with something a little more sparkly and spangly. But still with a unique approach to sustainable and ethical living!
Located in London’s newest foodie destination, Flat Iron Square, it’s the ideal place to explore a wide selection of street food stalls and pop-up shops. (Pre or post Pebblefest.)
Top Tips on a Zero Waste Christmas
If you’re looking for tips on how to have zero-waste Christmas in the kitchen, look out for the exciting line-up of guests running free workshops.
Jamie Crummie from food waste organisation Good to Go, and zero-waste chef George Blower will be there. They will be demonstrating how you can use ‘waste’, food surplus, or food by-products to transform dishes and reduce your food waste all year round. Not just at Christmas!
I’ll be making a beeline for their demos!
Shop sustainably at Pebblefest’s Ethical High Street
And if your New Year’s Resolution is to make a difference, then there are some ‘don’t miss’ discussion groups on how to make 2020 the year of #everydayactivism.
Bel Jacobs from XR Fashion, Talia Woodin from XR Youth, and Lizzie Carr from Plastic Patrol are getting to grips with the sustainable fashion, climate change and plastic pollution.
And I may well be buying myself a little something to pop under the tree from the fabulous selection of ethical, organic cotton and Fair-trade fashion labels. These will include Doc Cotton, Compare Ethics, Wynad and Lucy & Yak – spoiled for choice!
It’s not often that you get such a selection of sustainable-sourced fashion labels under one roof, so it’s worth going along just for this! Especially if like me, you are trying to move your wardrobe from fast to slow fashion.
As well as stocking up on eco-inspiration, I’m really looking forward getting some of my Christmas shopping ‘done and dusted’ on the ‘Ethical Highstreet’
Zero Waste Beauty Gifts at Pebblefestive
There will be some gorgeous natural and zero-waste health and beauty brands to shop from. These include LUSH, Awake Organics and Acala along with edible treats from Divine Chocolate, Abel & Cole and Oatly. I can’t wait to visit their vegan Ice Cream Van for a cone or a scoop of something delicious!
Pebblefest is also family-friendly! So if you have children in tow, they’ll be kept busy throughout the day with a selection of crafting workshops. Perfect for keeping them entertained while the grown-ups can enjoy adult-only activities, such as vegan and organic beer tasting with the fabulous Freedom Brewery.
I can’t think of a better way to get into the Christmas Spirit!
Pebblefestive is for one day only from 11am – 5.30 pm on 30th November -Sustainable Saturday. What a perfect antidote to Black Friday which takes place the day before!
Tickets are £7.50 (children under 12 go free) and 10% of ticket sales go to The Marine Conservation Society.
There is an early bird price of just £5!
So get quick off the mark and order yours here.
Hope to see you there!
