Our 2021 Impact Report
It’s time for our very first Impact Report!
Last year we announced our commitment to balancing planet with profit and outlined how we’d go about achieving this on our impact page.
As our Founder and CEO, Craig Turner put it:

Brighton beach clean-up
Our team took to Brighton for a (rather damp) beach clean-up. We collected a variety of plastic and waste for recycling.
Royal Parks conservation project
We helped build and maintain the Royal Parks' dead hedges, which provide shelter for small mammals and birds.
The Felix Project
With the Felix Project team, we unloaded surplus food donations and helped organise them for redistribution to charities across London.
We helped serve a delicious lunch to vulnerable members of the community. The Refettorio Felix team’s chefs created the three-course meals with 100% surplus goods.
