This month Feast Goes Green… Our environment has never been more important, which is why May’s Feast is all about going green. Throughout our hubs and planned activities there will be initiatives designed to help us be more green. This Sunday, bring your own tupperware to Feast and fill it up at any food stall to save using new boxes and packaging.

Plastic-free shopping  Local Herne Hill organisation Naked Larder offers south Londoners a chance to shop plastic free by purchasing dry goods and eco-friendly products in bulk to reduce packaging and reduce cost. Members pick up their shopping using their own reusable containers. Find out more about this new way to shop this weekend by visiting their stall.

Kids will have a souvenir to take home too!
Green crafts  South London Play Partners team will be stick weaving this Sunday. They will be encouraging kids to take responsibility for keeping their planet clean – starting with litter picking! Special litter pickers and gloves will be provided.
