Sustinere’s Earth Hour event is an opportunity for us all to dive deep into our daily habits, and think about simple yet achievable changes to reduce our environmental impact. During the panel and discussion, we will hear from Cel, Emma and Flora, who will fill us all with green ambition and practical know-how tips and tricks. This will be followed by a beautiful meal curated by our in-house Captain Planet and Head Chef, Joe O’Connell. The three courses will showcase delicious sustainable ingredients and cooking methods that will leave you feeling happy and Mother Earth feeling proud.
