Across the month of August, the Old Truman Brewery are bringing us V For – a festival consisting of conscious living workshops which collectively aim to encourage and educate people on living sustainably.
Their schedule includes a sustainable fashion pop up, rooftop yoga, an immersive plant based exhibition and London’s first Vegan fashion show, to name a few.
As part of the festival, Honest House will be hosting and running a 100% ethical marketplace on August 11th – 12th. They are collating products that are entirely cruelty free, fair trade, waste conscious, up cycled and plastic free, and bringing them to Brick Lane. The market will be a celebration of people, products, ideas and positivity to show that we can all be mindful and kind to the planet without compromising the fun in life.
Honest House believe in mindful, honest choices that will nurture individuals and the planet. Their aim is to prove that making minor changes can truly make a difference and it doesn’t have to be difficult.
There will bring over 25 brands, ranging from skincare to beauty to food, and the best part is it’s free entry all day from 10am – 6pm.
Panda Packaging are another brand getting involved – a quirky company who create handmade coconut bowls, bamboo cups and bamboo straws which are all sustainably sourced.
