Looking to have a more conscious Christmas this year? Head to pebblefestive, the festive edition of pebble magazine’s eco-festival taking place at London’s Flat Iron Square on 30 November.
With over 30 independent and eco-friendly brands to peruse there are plenty of gift opportunities – from Zola Eve’s collection of yoga leggings made from recycled plastics to Socko’s socks made from repurposed yarn. Other ethical exhibitors include LUSH, Riverford, Divine Chocolate, Happier Beauty, Compare Ethics, Bundlee and Buy Me Once.
As well as shopping visitors can enjoy a range of eco-friendly activities, including a cocktail making workshop using ingredients that typically get thrown away with Abel & Cole’s Jassy Davis and a chance to make your own curry spice mix for Boxing Day with Sassy Plants. Elsewhere you can learn the Japanese art of Furoshiki (fabric wrapping) with Wrappaccino, enjoy vegan and organic beer tasting with Freedom, and take part in plant pot decorating with Urban Growth – perfect for kids.
Throughout the day a series of thought-provoking talks will be taking place, including discussion on how reduce your food waste at Christmas with Good To Go’s CEO Jamie Crummie alongside a zero waste chef. Other topics being discussed include the power of positive advertising and community activism. Near the end of the day, Transition Towns founder Rob Hopkins will be presenting an interactive session on harnessing our imagination to solve some of the world’s biggest climate problems.
Guests can fuel up on dishes from the street food market, which will feature array of vegan and vegetarian dishes alongside festive tipples from Flat Iron Square’s three on-site bars.
