London is set to host a zero waste market, described by the organizers as the first of its kind.
The event, which will take place on September 29 in at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel, Kensington, will be 100 percent vegan.
Called Zero Mkt London, everything on offer will be edible, reusable, recyclable or compostable. Guests will have an array of stalls to explore, ranging from vegan food and drink, eco-lifestyle products, and sustainable clothing items.
The founders of the market, Abigail Penny and James Morgan, said: “[It is a] celebration, where together we can bask in plant-based goodness, explore sustainable products, and begin to live more consciously.
“As consumers, we can choose to have a positive impact on this world. We’re on a journey of discovery ourselves and want to share our experience with others.
“Animal agriculture, non-recyclable plastics, and throwaway fashion each have devastating impacts on our environment, so we hope that by bringing exciting alternatives to our community we can empower and equip others to change their habits and perspectives too!”
Zero Mkt London has partnered with City Harvest who will redistribute surplus food to London’s homeless community.
Any profit will be donated to leading animal protection organisation Animal Equality.
In addition, Zero Mkt London founders recognize that many stallholders will need to travel to the venue, so they will be planting trees as part of a carbon offsetting mission.
