At this year’s Grand Designs Live we are embracing the shows eco-ethos. Following the recent publicity surrounding the impact of single use plastics on the environment, we have devised a campaign to turn the tide on plastic pollution.
Working alongside ExCeL and the NEC, Grand Designs Live is prohibiting the sale of plastic bottles from all in-show catering points, along with the distribution of plastic straws at our shows. Plastic cutlery and show goody bags will be replaced with biodegradable alternatives.
Our official charity partner, Friends of the Earth, will be selling reusable bottles and contributing to panel discussions on a variety of environmental issues.
We need your help with this initiative to truly have an impact on the environment and ask that, where possible, you can also ban the distribution of single-use plastics in our shows.
