IT’S TIME TO MAKE A STAND AGAINST PLASTIC – A Pop Up Supper Club
A guest blog by Rose Loyd Owen from Pear Drop.
Working in the food industry, we see a heartbreaking amount of single use plastic hitting our bins and the effect it’s having on our environment can no longer be ignored.
The world uses 20 million plastic water bottles per day. What mad proportion of those bottles are drunk in countries like ours where the tap water is safe to drink? It then takes 450 years for a plastic water bottle to decompose in landfill. And only 10% of recyclable plastic is actually recycled.
By making small changes to our mindset, it’s easy to cut down on our plastic usage.
So, by using the power of good food, interesting company and a healthy discussion, we invite you to make a Plastic Pledge: a pledge to CUT OUT those water bottles / plastic bags / straws / coffee cups for a week, a month or dare we say it, a lifetime!
On Thursday 10th May we will be having a pop up supper club to celebrate food that doesn’t come in plastic packaging. Tickets will be released soon.
We’ll open the evening with a welcome drink and a panel discussion (line up to be announced), during which we’ll serve Tom Hunt’s beautiful amuse bouche. Three other courses will follow from Chantelle Nicholson, chef patron of Marcus Wareing’s Tredwells, Ivan Tisdall-Downes & Imogen Davis of wild food restaurant Native and Rose Lloyd Owen, founder of Peardrop. The full menu will be available soon!
£2 from every ticket will be donated to the WWF.
