It’s not a market. At The Factory Studios in Boscombe, The Last Straw will celebrate sustainability!
The purpose of the event is to create awareness about environmental issues such as global warming, single use plastics and water pollution. We aim to offer attendees sustainable alternatives in order to achieve an eco-friendlier lifestyle.The event is aimed at the local community of Dorset and consists of three main elements creating an immersive market experience.
1) Art Installation: This installation has been curated by a final year student at Bournemouth University. It will raise awareness of water pollution and today’s environmental issues.
2) Sustainable Market: This will offer the community alternative products from local companies that are more environmentally friendly.
3) Workshops: Hosted for the attendees to demonstrate easy DIY techniques to create homemade living products that help promote a sustainable lifestyle.
We are delighted to learn that money raised at the event will be donated to Sustainable Dorset (Dorset Agenda 21 Ltd is a registered charity). The organisers chose Sustainable Dorset for being a central hub of all sustainable and resilient activity across the county and share the same aim as The Green Elephant Events team – to raise awareness and to increase interest and involvement in sustainability.
