Wimbledon's latest pop up music & arts venue shares its #PlasticFreeMerton story...
Being plastic free has been at the heart of The Sound Lounge’s principles since it first started in 2015. After researching how they would eliminate single-use plastics, the team decided to use a company called Vegware, who supply compostable cups, straws, baguette sleeves, takeaway boxes and even cutlery!
When the environmental situation is as critical as it is now, businesses have to be proactive and take action, and taking the plastic-free pledge is not antithetical to good business.
Consumers will always be so happy when you let them know that their buying choices are helping to reduce the country’s carbon footprint. People are really getting behind us because they really care and we would encourage other local businesses to get involved – it is easier than you think, it’s the right thing to do and it feels good!
