Sustainability in the City: Stand for Tomorrow at TOMS
a musician, activist and community builder working on mental wellbeing and sustainable living for young women. Beyond that, it’s a larger call to action to our community to take a stand for what they believe in and make a positive impact on the future, big or small. We can all be change-makers! How does the Carnaby store shout about these important subjects? We are so proud of our TOMS London Community Outpost in Carnaby as it’s so much more than just a store. It’s a place for people to meet, share a coffee at our TOMS Roasting Co. coffee bar, join an event or learn more about our giving. From checking out the latest styles and getting inspired by the work that we do to buying a coffee – which gives a day of water to a person in need – and even going on a virtual reality ‘Giving Trip in Peru’, there’s a lot to see and do that you wouldn’t expect in a normal store. What are the must-haves from the Carnaby shop? This year check out the hero styles that are part of our ‘Stand for Tomorrow’ campaign, including our new Airforce Blue TRVL LITE sneakers. The Venice Collection will also be available in the Foubert’s Place store – these are a tribute to our Californian roots, featuring the classic TOMS styles in pop colours and neon brights.
Renowned for its revolutionary One for One giving model, TOMS provides shoes, eyesight restoration and water through its wide network of Giving Partners. Amy Smith, TOMS’ Chief Giving Officer, tells us more. Give us the latest on the amazing work that goes on at TOMS. When Blake Mycoskie first launched TOMS 12 years ago, he made a commitment to building a better tomorrow. Since then, TOMS has given away over 86 million pairs of shoes through One for One. TOMS has also aided 600,000 sight restorations and provided 600,000 weeks of safe water to communities around the world. With every product purchased, TOMS will help a person in need. We currently work with over 60 Giving Partners and look to them for guidance on the most pressing needs of the people they serve. We are launching the ‘Stand for Tomorrow’ campaign, where we will communicate the evolution of our giving model and launch the first local projects in Europe. We will introduce our customers to the activists, change- makers and artists we will be working closely on these projects with. These include Joshua Coombes, a London-based hairdresser and founder of the campaign #DoSomethingForNothing, and Ella Grace Denton, Tell us about your new ‘Stand for Tomorrow’ campaign for 2019.

GREEN IS THE NEW BLACK
Pepe Jeans London
Over at Replay on Carnaby Street, its Ice Blast eco- friendly wash jeans are made with a low environmental impact treatment with ice crystals, which preserve the brightness of the colours and save 80% of the water typically used in traditional treatments. Less waste leaves a better taste, and on Berwick Street, Nudie Jeans ’ popular Soho ‘Repair Shop’ aims to give new life to old denim. With its 100% organic denim collection, the Swedish brand is also setting the standard in socially responsible jeans. It’s not just clothes in Carnaby that are getting hip to the sustainability tip, as the Newburgh Quarter's Joy Everley Fine Jewellers has designed a collection of ecologically sustainable engagement rings made from 100% recycled materials. Each ring features a beautiful recycled diamond taken from a vintage treasure. It’s time to respect Mother Nature and make a difference in restoring and protecting our world, and where better to start than in Carnaby?
Sustainable fashion is the way forward, and being conscious about how we buy and what we wear is the new style savvy. Recycling, upcycling, reusing, repairing, customising and even wearing biodegradable fabrics, organic fibres and clothing made from recycled plastic salvaged from the ocean is what it’s now all about. Carnaby is full of brands doing their best for the environment, and now’s your chance to get involved. Columbia Sportswear is Carnaby Street’s latest edition, with the 80-year-old US brand’s new European flagship shop housing its brilliant technical outdoor gear such as the OutDry Ex Eco Jacket, made out of 100% recycled fabric, including 21 plastic bottles. At Oi Polloi on Marshall Street, the forward-thinking brand Satta, which means ‘existence' or 'being’, focuses on small-scale production and uses eco-friendly fabrics like hemp. Compared to cotton, hemp is stronger, uses less water and improves the soil it's grown in. Another firm- favourite label in the store is Patagonia and its P-6 Logo Responsibili-Tee made from 100% recycled cotton and polyester. Back on Carnaby Street and Pepe Jeans London is bringing the sustainable factor to its denim with its ‘Wiser Wash’ process, an eco-revolutionary washing technology that uses zero toxic chemicals, with no water waste. It’s part of the denim giant’s responsible innovation programme called TRU-BLU.
FOUR WAYS TO WEAR Forget fast fashion, savvy stylist Libby Carradice-French gives us her top tips on
seasonal styling and how to make classic pieces work all year round. For every day, keep it classic with a basic top under your dungarees, or layer a relaxed jumper over to create an illusion of baggy trousers. For evenings, add a structured jacket and cute bag, transforming laid-back casual to effortless chic. Simply adding accessories can switch it up, so pop on a pair of sunglasses or throw on a coat and bag for an easy transformation. These timeless looks will take you from day to night and can be reworked for every season, making recycling fashion fun.

Have you ever considered where your food comes from? We caught up with four Carnaby chefs and restaurateurs to discover the journey that your food takes before ending up on your plate.

Fabian Clark, Founder
What made you choose crab as the hero of your menu? Crab is hugely undervalued in the UK. We have an abundance of it across all of our shorelines and it’s so healthy, sustainable, versatile and delicious! Following the 'Blue Planet' effect, why do you think diners are becoming more interested in how sustainable their food is? People are becoming increasingly aware of the daily decisions they make and what impact the food they eat has on the environment. Consumers now demand a better understanding of the provenance of their food; not just with fish but vegetables and meat alike.
Being part of a new generation of chefs, how do you feel the industry is changing the way we dine? People are definitely eating out a lot more in comparison to the previous generation. However, with the rise of social media, consumers are always looking out for the next ‘big thing’, and as a result, restaurants need to do everything they can to retain their customers and convert them into regulars. If you could sum up Claw in one dish, what would it be? It would probably be the crab mac & cheese – it’s unique and indulgent. Where do you go to relax in Carnaby after a hard day’s work? I usually go to Two Floors on Kingly Street for a beer after work.
DEHESA William Breese, Head Chef 25 Ganton Street
Dehesa is a member of the SRA (Sustainable Restaurant Association) with two stars. Tell us what makes you a sustainable restaurant. We are proud to be a sustainable restaurant and really believe in trying to better ourselves and help the environment as much as we can. We train our staff on our policies, which include using seasonal produce, recycling, separating food waste and watching our energy usage. Your menu changes seasonally; what sort of changes can we expect to see this year? Seasonality is very important to us. This year we will be working closely with our suppliers to offer our customers a regularly changing menu that really brings
jamones start the same way as all others, with black Iberian pigs feeding on acorns and being cured for around three years. However, ours is cured for five years. The flavour is incredible, sweet and nutty, and really unlike any other jamon or charcuterie you can buy. Often, there are so many options with tapas that people struggle to know what to order. What dishes would you recommend to a first-time tapas diner? For first-timers I always recommend starting with Padron peppers, croquetas and a charcuterie selection. From there, choose some classics, something you have never tried before, and never forget the patatas bravas.
Where do you recommend in Carnaby for the ultimate dining experience? My top three places to eat out in Carnaby are Shoryu Ramen, Dirty Bones in Kingly Court and our neighbours Jinjuu. There are plenty of amazing places in Carnaby where you can find great dining experiences.
the best of what’s in season to the plate. The concept is to create a menu that ranges from the Spanish classics to more contemporary, experimental dishes. Of course, the classics such as our courgette flowers, jamon ibérico and classic tortilla will be staying put! Why should everyone try your jamon ibérico? If you aren’t familiar with jamon ibérico, it's definitely something you need to try. It’s one of the best products you can get and is very special to us. Our hams or
Second Floor, Kingly Court
Your menu is changed every eight weeks to reflect the seasonality of vegetables from organic British producers. Why did you introduce this? Most Indian households eat seasonally, and almost everyone buys from the local fruit and vegetable market. I wanted to maintain that traditional ethos of shopping from the Sabzi Mandi (vegetable bazaar) at Darjeeling Express. Seasonal and local produce tastes so much better! Very exciting that you were the first British chef to be featured on Netflix's 'Chef's Table'. How did you use your voice to promote sustainability? In the film we go to my family's mango orchard, and my father talks about the value of the soil and its importance to my family. I talked about the damage being done to the lives of farmers in developing countries who are being encouraged to grow specifically sized produce for British supermarkets. The farmer gets hardly any money and the middlemen make all the profit. The family of the farmer, who would previously be fed by produce grown in the land, struggle to make ends meet with the cash they get for their produce. All restaurants should buy locally and reduce the carbon footprint on their menu by reducing the number of items they fly down from distant countries. If you could choose a dish from your menu to best describe you, what would it be? At the moment the chicken chaap onnour from our special menu. It's a subtle, korma-like dish made with chicken cooked on the bone. It's only made in Bengal and Bangladesh, where my maternal family comes from. It's a fragrant, gently spiced heritage dish with royal roots.
Asma Khan, Chef and Restaurateur
What do you love the most about Carnaby, and why is it the perfect home for Darjeeling Express? I love the buzz of Kingly Court. You immediately feel transformed to another world. For me, the courtyard reminds me of my home in India in the summer, on the second floor with all the windows opened. In winter, the roof and beautiful lights remind me of the winter marquees of my family weddings. It fits so well with the food we serve!
Richard Kirkwood, Group Chef
What makes British oysters so remarkable? We live on an island, so are lucky enough to be
surrounded by seas and waterways. The cold waters slow down the oyster’s metabolism, producing crisp, meaty and sweet oysters. The flavour profile of an oyster is also influenced by the waters in which they’re grown, so British oysters develop different flavours as you move around the British Isles. For example, Lindisfarne oysters are creamy and plump, Jersey oysters are lean and briny, while Morecambe Bay oysters are grown in a salt marsh near land and therefore develop lots of minerality.
How do you incorporate sustainability into your menu, and why is this so important for you?
Can you share any exciting future plans for Wright Brothers Soho? We relaunched with a fresh new look at the end of 2018, and this year we are excited to showcase our terrace spaces and oyster-shucking cart.
The essence of sustainability is to preserve the fruits of the ocean for future generations, which is why we aim to buy seasonally.
Oysters are known to be the food of love; which Wright Brothers dish would you recommend for date night? I would definitely start with a platter of our mixed oysters, followed by a couple of small plates, so as not to distract from the conversation. Finish with a dessert to share and one of our delicious after-dinner cocktails.
What’s your favourite Carnaby restaurant – other than Wright Brothers?
I like Señor Ceviche. The head chef is my good friend and Wright Brothers alumni.

Whether I’m in need of a delicious meal or a quick pick-me-up, Carnaby, with its great selection of cuisines, is one of my favourite food destinations in London to explore and bring family and friends. Here, I’ve picked my favourite dishes to take you from breakfast to dinner.

DOUGHNUTS A great place for a coffee and sugar fix

Vegan Hot Spots
PORK SHAWARMA KEBAB Taking late-night kebabs to a new level
I'm Clare Every, also known as @thelittlelondonvegan , and I spend my time venturing around London searching for the best vegan food on offer. It’s been widely documented that veganism is the single biggest way to reduce our impact on the planet, and with so many incredible options now, I encourage everyone to give it a try.
DirtyBones,SecondFloor,KinglyCourt In a place where the menu is traditionally meat heavy, you probably wouldn't expect to find a vegan option, but these guys offer a plant-based meaty-style patty so that you can get involved with the burger action too. ShoryuRamen,GroundFloor,KinglyCourt I lose count of how many times I've tucked into Shoryu's spicy vegetarian ramen. It's beautiful. Both of their veggie ramens are listed as vegetarian, but they're actually totally vegan. Rosa'sThaiCafE,23GantonStreet From summer rolls to comforting Thai green curry, Rosa's Thai Cafe more than adequately caters to the vegan community. One of the best-known Indian restaurants in London now offers an entire vegan menu, and in my opinion, it would be rude to go there and not order the gunpowder potatoes. Dishoom,22KinglyStreet Again, not the first place that springs to mind for a vegan, but it's a slick venue and their mock duck dishes are pretty impressive. TheDuck&Rice,90BerwickStreet Probably the best-known veggie/vegan restaurant in London, Mildreds often has a queue outside, and with good reason. From salad bowls to mushroom and ale pies, they've got it all. I recommend ordering the Sri Lankan curry. It's superb! Mildreds,45LexingtonStreet I could quite happily live on dumplings for the rest of my life and Yauatcha absolutely nails them. But if you do go, make sure you also order the stir-fry soybean with cloud ear mushroom. Yauatcha,15–17BroadwickStreet

Fashion with substance
At Monki , 100% of its cotton has been sustainably sourced, and it's not stopping there. As part of the Monki Cares initiative, the brand offers garment and textile recycling in its Carnaby store in exchange for a 10% discount voucher, and the store is also powered by renewable energy. Vans is home to all your action sport needs, but did you know that within its surf division, it supports Waves For Change, a charity providing a child-friendly mental health service to at-risk youth in South Africa. The two collaborated on the inspiring ‘Can't Steal Our Vibe’ film about a life-changing surfboard drive in South Africa. Its UltraRange 3D footwear is a top pick for budding surfers in Carnaby. As well as providing all your yellow-stitched lace-up boots, iconic footwear brand Dr. Martens supports the Joe Strummer Foundation, which promotes social mobility through music, giving opportunities to aspiring musicians. Get active with G-SHOCK and the Chasing Lights Collective at their regular events celebrating fitness and London culture, and inspiring, supporting and leading people into the amazing world of movement and community.

Dining with a conscience
Help provide clean water to communities around the world while enjoying delicious free-range chicken at Whyte & Brown . Add an optional £1 donation to your bill, which will go direct to WaterAid UK as part of Whyte & Brown’s partnership with bottled water company Belu. Drink in style and give back at private members’ club The Court , which supports the Wild at Heart Foundation, the charity founded by celebrity florist Nikki Tibbles which funds and supports animal welfare projects worldwide. Twenty per cent from the sale of every Wild at Heart cocktail goes directly to the foundation, and don’t miss regular charity brunches on the last Sunday of every month. Just around the corner on Ganton Street, Rosa’s Thai Cafe prioritises its sustainability credentials as highly as its super-fresh Thai cooking. The family-run restaurant works directly with Thai farmers to source its Asian ingredients and buys as much local produce as possible to support UK and European producers. Support Magic Breakfast at Dishoom , a charity helping children to start every day with a healthy breakfast. Dishoom has donated 5.3 million meals since starting its Meal for a Meal initiative in 2015, where for every breakfast meal purchased, a breakfast is in turn donated to a child who would otherwise go hungry. You can also support the charity at The Good Egg in Kingly Court, with donations from the sale of its house granola going towards the good cause.

Say Hello to the Ocean
Imagine something that could make fresh water, create the world’s most delicious food, generate sweet, fresh air and provide millions of jobs.
Photography Ben Thouard
The ocean is our respite, and it gives us life. Every second breath you take is made by the ocean. It regulates climate and stores carbon. The ocean makes the clouds that make the rain and snow to give us fresh water. Around the world, over a billion people rely on the ocean for daily protein. The ocean covers more than 70% of the Earth’s surface, and yet less than 4% is under protection. Today there are 500 dead zones – places where no life exists in the ocean – totalling the size of the UK. More than 90% of the ocean’s top predators are gone, 60% of fish stocks have collapsed and half the coral reefs are gone. The ocean is making less oxygen than it used to. This should concern everyone. No ocean, no life. It’s time to show the ocean some love.
The problem is that few people know that the ocean is under attack, and equally bad, ocean conservation is critically underfunded. Only 3% of the world’s charitable giving goes to the environment, and a mere 6% of that goes to the ocean. The hard truth is that the ocean needs more champions.
” Today there are 500 dead zones – places where no life exists in the ocean - totalling the size of the UK.
Project 0 exists to awaken the fight for the ocean. We are the ocean’s enterprise. With innovation at our core and the world’s most aspirational cultural makers and partners at our side, Project 0 engages a new generation with share-worthy content, experiences and products that create new revenue streams for the ocean. We create campaigns that get the world’s attention and put the ocean in culture to create a movement that inspires people to join us by adopting ocean-friendly behaviours to restore and protect the ocean. Our mission is to get 30% of the ocean under protection by 2030, ignite behavioural change and raise new sources of revenue. Scientists have determined that a minimum of 30% of the ocean needs to be under protection – places where ecosystems thrive and
teem with biodiversity and are healthy to mitigate the effects of negative impacts from overfishing and climate change. To start, we have identified 32 priority areas to receive funding to secure their sustainability in perpetuity and accelerate the restoration of the ocean.
Together we can create huge impact. We hope that you will join us.
Project 0 spoke to Bleach Co-Founder Alex Brownsell on her love of Soho and what actions they’re taking to make their beauty brand friendly for both your hair and the environment. Meanwhile, Project 0 ambassadors Georgia May Jagger, Tyrone Wood, Benjamin Fletcher and Jake Morant got together to embrace the greener side of beauty. Bleach: Beauty with Substance
Why is sustainability so important to your business ethos?
We have a duty as a young brand to show our customers that you can make the decision to be as sustainable and responsible as possible. Hopefully smaller companies leading the charge might encourage bigger brands and corporations to try harder (or at all). We only have one planet and one chance to try and fix it.
Tell us more about your refill stations.
Customers can fill up our reusable glass bottles with their favourite Bleach London shampoo and conditioner at the salon when they run out. Prices start from £18 for the original purchase then £10 pounds per refill, so it works out as cheaper as well as being better for the environment.
What’s your favourite Bleach product?
They’re all my babies! At the moment I’m in love with the glass refill bottles and the beer range, which uses beer extract and is packed full of nutrients to restore damaged hair. You're well known for creating exciting and experimental hair looks and colours. What’s your favourite colour or colour combo? I love orange and red hair. We’ve also been seeing loads of patterns on shaved heads, which is big on social media too. It’s fun that hair colour is still continuing to be experimental and bold after all these years. Your branding and salon style are so individual and identifiable. How would you describe the Bleach boy and girl? We believe that dyeing your hair should be fun and an extension of your personal style. We put our own personalities into the names and colours and hope that everyone else likes them too. Sometimes they’re old in- jokes that take on a life of their own, like Awkward Peach or Blullini. I believe that if you enjoy and put love into making or doing something, then it’ll be more likely to resonate with a wider audience. As long as it keeps being fun and we aren’t comparing ourselves to other brands or trying to fit into a box, I think we’ll continue to be original.
How did Bleach come to be?
Bleach started as a one-chair pop-up in WAH Nails on Kingsland Road in Dalston nine years ago, after my home kitchen salon Sylvester Salon became too popular and I got sick of cleaning hair dye out of bowls.
What's the best thing about having a salon in the heart of Soho?
Soho is the beating heart of London. There’s so much history and personal memories for everyone that works there. We love the bustle of Berwick Street and the diversity of the neighbourhood. It’s nice to have seen it progress from a popular nightlife area to a place for young, independent brands whilst still maintaining its personality.
What do you do to ensure Bleach is a sustainable eco-friendly business?
We work really hard to make sure we’re as eco-friendly as we can be. We manufacture in the UK and Europe and try to avoid importing things from far away to help reduce our carbon footprint. All our products are vegan and we use recycled cardboard and plastic in our packaging. We’re also now offering product refills in our salons as part of our pact to reduce plastic. We’ve also removed brushes and bowls from our bleaching kits and are releasing a reusable coconut alternative to plastic.

Oliver Spencer 81 Berwick Street
Sandqvist 79 Berwick Street
Sandqvist is renowned for its stylish and long-lasting bags, with sustainability and care for the environment at the core of the brand. We spoke to Brand Director Sebastian Westin to find out more.
The philosophy of Oliver Spencer is that quality needn’t mean formality and casual needn’t mean careless. The timeless brand has its very own head of sustainability, Bleue Wickham-Burnham , who tells us more.
What sets Sandqvist apart from other brands when it comes to sustainability?
Sustainability is such a hot topic. How is Oliver Spencer doing its bit?
Sustainability is complex and there isn’t a one- fit solution. We’ve focused our attention on using high-quality and low-impact materials such as organic cotton, European linen and un-dyed wools. We are also focused on reducing the footprint of our packaging.
Since the beginning of Sandqvist’s journey, we have always had sustainability in mind. It has always been in our DNA to make things durable and fix what´s broken.
Tell us about an exciting new collection for 2019.
Tell us what’s new at Oliver Spencer.
2019 marks the launch of the Sandqvist Light Collection. Fresh and crisp in colour and style, the collection includes sustainable materials including organic cotton, recycled fibres and vegetable-tanned leather.
This season is a big step in the right direction in regards to environmental sustainability. 30% of the materials used fall into our ‘ecological’ bracket which means they are either organic cotton, European linen or BCI (Better Cotton Initiative) cotton.
What makes the Soho store unique among your other European stores?
What is your view on the new trend for sustainable fashion?
Scandinavian design and British style goes hand in hand, you guys are our best customers – trendy, well dressed and know what you want. We love Soho and its mix of creativity, business, tourists, good food and eclectic characters.
It is imperative that sustainability is a focus and not a trend. It needs to be a journey of continual improvement which becomes the norm.
