Tickets are FREE - you just need to register here to get them. 

Plus, we'll be giving 10 x smol goody bags to the first ten people to who join us each day, and say the magic words "smol things make a big difference!". 

Manchester Central. 

The Sustainability Show brings an almost festival-like atmosphere to living in a planet-friendly way. There’s music, workshops, talks and many many brands with one shared mission of making a difference.

And you don’t have to be a die-hard eco-activist to attend! We’re getting involved because it’s a chance for like-minded folk to explore the ways we can all make changes to have an impact, because as we always say… smol things make a big difference.

Part of our time will be spent on a panel being quizzed by Sustainability Expert and Author Georgina Wilson-Powell, to chat about #WhatOneThing you can change to be better for the planet. Join us Sunday 9th July at 4:15pm to watch it!
Because that one thing is our speciality. It’s what drives us. Easy sustainable swaps we can all adopt into our lifestyles that really add up to making a difference.
Our customers really enjoy keeping check on their own personal impact statements that track the difference they are making on their accounts. And when they see the overall impact we have when we come together, it really brings it home just how much change can come from a few simple swaps. 
Every month our customers are now saving nearly 50 tonnes of plastic, over 100 tonnes of chemicals and stopping over 100,000 litres of water from a pointless polluting journey.
So we’re looking forward to being on the panel with some other brilliant speakers and amongst other things we’re keen to showcase:

  1. How everyday products like laundry detergent or shampoo have a massive impact on the environment, and how easy it is to switch to something better
  2. Take a load off! We’ve got loads of no-washing washing tips to cut back on machine use, saving energy and your wallet
  3. Every revolution starts “smol” - sometimes change can feel overwhelming but when we come together, we DO have the power to make a difference.

Of course there are hundreds of ways to lower our environmental impact and that’s where many other brands and experts will be on hand to help out. 
You could investigate the food you buy, the clothing you wear, how to upcycle and repurpose, how to save water and use less energy… in fact how to just use less generally! 
There’s even a dedicated area for the kids called the Little Green Minds zone so the whole family can get involved. 
At the end of the day it’s all about progress not perfection. As zero-waste chef Anne Marie Bonneau said simply:
“We don't need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly”.

We all have a role to play in reducing waste and doing our bit to avert the climate emergency and you’ll be amazed how many simple ideas you can incorporate into your life.

The power comes from our numbers.
