Plant Based News will be hosting a vegan Christmas zero waste supper club in London next month.
The festive season is often a time of excess - and with data suggesting 4.2 million Christmas dinners are thrown away across the UK each year - waste can spiral out of control.
So PBN has teamed up with chef Soph Gordon, vegetable company Oddbox, and Bring Your Own to host its 'Waste Less this Christmas' pop-up supper club at Benk and Bo in Shoreditch on December 5.
Diners will be treated to a four-course meal prepared by Soph Gordon, using seasonal fruit and veg from Oddbox and English grown grains (provided packaging-free) from BYO, which has just opened a new store in Nunhead.
"Sophie will prepare each course with the theme of zero waste in mind, so don’t be surprised if you see a vegetable feature in your desert, freshly toasted pumpkin seeds and quirky decor," said PBN Co-founder Robbie Lockie. "The dishes prepared will hopefully help to give you some inspiration for your own festive feast."
Attendees will be given a choice of alcoholic or alcohol-free cocktails on arrival from Fix8 Kombucha, and freshly prepared nibbles, including the finest vegan cheese around, thanks to KindaCo.
Thomas James Smith will be playing live acoustic music throughout the course of the evening. Entertainment also includes talks by Plant Based News, Oddbox, BYO, Sophie, Immy Lucas from Sustainably Vegan - with more to be revealed.
"Bring yourself, tupperware (incase your eyes are bigger than your stomach), a tote bag (for a DIY fruit and veg potluck), good vibes - and a Christmas hat might not go amiss," said Lockie.
