For this week’s post Following on from our Clever Breakfast with Kelp Blue and the creation of the St Luke’s sustainability squad, we asked St Lukers for their best sustainable hints, tricks and tips. We wanted to share with you the sustainable companies they admire and buy from, the educational sources which have taught them about being greener or just an everyday change they have made or incorporated into their lives to help support the planet.. Here’s what they came up with.

Tip for upcoming BBQ season – Moving Mountains vegan burgers and sausages are seriously the best. And I’m not even vegan. You can literally not tell it’s not meat, it’s almost a little scary 😊 https://www.ocado.com/products/moving-mountains-plant-based-burger-524494011

Badger & Birch
Recommended by Vanisha Mistry - Designer
I stumbled across Badger & Birch one day and love all the products. Founder Hazel, reuses and recycles natural materials with minimum waste. One of the main materials being seafood shells which create beautiful, terrazzo patterned homeware and jewellery products. They’ve started selling workshop kits so you can get creative at home!
Too Good To Go
Recommended by Jo Boyle -creative
Every day, delicious, fresh food goes to waste at cafes, restaurants, hotels, shops and supermarkets - just because it hasn’t sold in time. Too Good To Go lets you rescue a Magic Bag of this food so it gets eaten instead of wasted. You won’t know exactly what’s in your order until you pick it up - it’s all part of the surprise. Great food at great prices, served with a side of environmental kudos. https://toogoodtogo.co.uk/en-gb
