Sustainability is at the heart of our Carnaby installation, with every element using recycled, repurposed or reusable materials including water-based, eco-friendly, vegan paint.
We're so excited to collaborate with ocean conservation charity, Project Zero, for our Christmas 2019 installation. This year, prepared to be immersed into a theatrical underwater scene, with each street representing an area of the ocean in need of conservation. Journey through the floating kelp forest, into the bright, pink coral and end in the deep, blue sea.
Our iconic Carnaby arch will shine brightly in shimmer disks and be sure to snap a shot of our globe encased in a clam at the centre of the art with our message, One Ocean One Planet, to highlight the urgent need to protect and restore the ocean to mitigate the damaging effects of climate change and create a sustainable future for life on Earth.
With materials like repurposed fishing netting for green kelp, the light installation also features over 500m of post-use bubbled wrap repurposed for coral and over 1,500 recycled plastic bottles for fish and bubbles. 100% cotton fabrics and over 100L of water-based eco-friendly, vegan paint has been used for the world-first installation. In addition, the power used for the lights is 100% renewably sourced.
All tickets at the shopping party are printed using vegetable based ink and made from made from 100% recycled paper and can be recycled themselves. All of our plastic pint glasses at the bar can also be washed and reused over 100 times. They are fully recyclable whilst they prevent thousands of single-use plastic cups being thrown away.
