I was lucky enough to go to the P.E.A (People, Environment, Achievement) Awards this year, an event I’ve always wanted to attend as it celebrates the eco, sustainability and green heroes of our world.
Beauty brand Weleda kindly invited me and my sister, and we joined a few other green beauty fans, including my fave green make-up artist friends Lou Dartford and Conscious Beauty Union, on a decadent table for an entertainment-filled night at Studio 338 in Greenwich, London.
The year’s event, sponsored by Octopus Energy, was co-hosted by P.E.A. founder Jarvis Smith and biophilic design expert Oliver Heath with an immersive theatre performance by Enlightenment Cafe, including a brilliantly fun Climate Change Bingo.
A delicious vegan meal was served by Amrutha Catering with drinks merrily flowing thanks to Juniper Green Organic (great gin), Atlantic Distillery, Luscombe Organic, Equinox Kombucha and Deeside Water.
Now its 9th year, P.E.A is the UK’s leading sustainability awards, honouring individuals and teams behind the products, services and businesses that are making a positive difference to people and planet.
