A Zero Waste Market will take place in Sheffield on November 26.
The event is being organized by HeartCure Collective, a community of vegans.
The market will reveal the Zero Waste Store which will feature in Heartcure Collective.
The market will include different eco friendly stalls, vegan food, and zero waste products.
Brands at the market will feature Made by Scavenger, which will be selling goods made from old climbing gear and Zero Waste Club, selling the world's first bamboo toothbrush with a replaceable head.
Food stalls will include Froconut by Ellie Joy, where you can pick up a dairy-free, coconut based ice cream topped with superfoods, served in a coconut shell.
Numinums will be serving falafel wraps on the day, created using organic and locally sourced ingredients, using only biodegradable packaging made from plant-based materials.
The Collective is holding the market in order to raise funds for its vegan social centre - currently slated to open in 2018 in Sheffield.
According to a spokesperson: "The aim of the centre is to help unite the local vegan community and help drive change in the animal rights movement.
"The centre once open will feature a cafe, library, kids area, workstations, zero waste store, ethical clothing store and more.
"It will be the first of its kind in the U.K. It will provide educational resources and tools for the local community to learn more about veganism."
