London will soon welcome its first ever vegan, zero waste market that will showcase sustainable products and aims to help us all to live more consciously.
Set to take place between 10.00-17.00 on Saturday 29th September at the beautiful palm tree filled Conservatory (at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel, Kensington), Zero Mkt London will involve zero animal products, zero single-use plastics and zero waste.
Everything will be edible, reusable, recyclable or compostable, and visitors will find a wide array of stalls to explore, ranging from vegan food and drink to eco-lifestyle products and sustainable clothing items.
The market’s founders, Abigail Penny and James Morgan, describe the event as a “celebration, where together we can bask in plant-based goodness, explore sustainable products, and begin to live more consciously”.
Speaking about what inspired them to launch the event, they said:
“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 and any profit will be donated to Animal Equality, a leading animal protection organisation.
Zero Mkt London founders recognise that many stallholders will need to travel to the venue, so they will be planting trees as part of a carbon offsetting mission.
