Here are a few of our favourite suppliers who will make sure you’re event is carbon neutral/ negative!
1 – Kiss the Hippo
Kiss the Hippo is London’s first carbon-neutral coffee roaster and was started in 2018. The coffee is ethnically sourced and then roasted in the world’s most environmentally friendly roasting machine using renewable electricity like wind and solar power.
Plus Kiss the Hippo have partnered with the reforestation charity On a Mission, and has pledged to plant a tree in Nepal for every new coffee pod subscription registered!
2 – Two Drifters
Two Drifters is the world’s first carbon-negative distillery started by husband and wife team Gemma and Russ Wakeham and is an Exeter-based vegan brand. As both a brewery and rum distillery which has an entirely carbon negative process meaning they offset all CO2 emissions calculated to make the products making over 1,800 bottles a week by fermenting 100% mollasses and distilling in their bespoke warehouse.
3 – Eden Caterers
Eden Caterers are regarded as one of the UK’s most sustainable caterers, providing fresh, seasonal and delicious food since 1993. Their kitchens are based in Waterloo and they cater for all kinds of events from breakfast meetings to 15 person sit down dinners and events for over 1000 guests. They use solely local UK ingredients and only free range ingredients and sustainable sourced fish and have been awarded the highest possible rating from the Sustainable Restaurant Association.
4 – Honest Flower Farm
Honest Flower Farm was established by two Florist friends who simply wanted to grow British flowers for their customers and events, with a focus on being as sustainable as possible. Chloe and Sophie both found floristry after working in fast fashion for too many years. It was this experience that led them both to growing beautiful flowers in a responsible way, using sustainable practices and eco methods wherever possible, focusing on seasonal cut flowers full of quirk and charm and using the hedgerows surrounding their plot for foliage and blossom to compliment other flowers giving to give their creations a truly natural look and feel.
5 – The Little Horse Picture Booth
The Little Horse Picture Booth have the UK’s two only solar powered eco-friendly photo-booths for both indoor and outdoor use. Our favourite is their vintage horse-box converted into a photo booth with an early 1900’s camera and tripod using the latest technology to provide professional quality photos for you and your guests. Because it is 100% solar powered it means they can go totally ‘off grid’ as they don’t need mains power. Filled with crazy props and dress up this is the perfect addition to any event! Plus they offer both an online gallery and prints and offset their carbon emissions for every event they attend, planting a tree in your name!
