Looking to start your own eco-brand? Learn how to sew your own clothes? Get clued up on sustainability? You can do all this and more at Pebblefest, a new eco-friendly festival coming to London’s Flat Iron Square this weekend. Panel talks will cover topics such as ethical fashion, food waste and brewing your own beer, from speakers such as Plastic Patrol founder Lizzie Carr and eco-writer Jen Gale.
Workshops, meanwhile, will teach visitors about foraged bitters, creating zero waste lunches and sustainable beauty with LUSH, and you can pick up some vintage steals at a clothes market supported by second hand clothing enterprise Traid. Plenty of eco-friendly food will be on offer too from conscious brands such as Abel & Cole and Rude Health, which you can wash down with sustainable cocktail from Sapling Spirits, a Toast Ales beer, or a warming tea from the Pukka pop-up tea shop.
The festival comes at a time when Flat Iron Square are changing the way they deal with waste. As of recently all plastic, glass, food, cardboard and oil are dealt with and recycled separately, with many waste-segregated bins for the public to use.
