It’s 15 Hatfields 10th Anniversary and they have enjoyed every minute of the lead up to it, celebrating a decade of growth with some of most unforgettable moments and milestones. Plus, they have a birthday promise to share with you…

As London’s most sustainable events venue  they have announced that they are working towards becoming a completely single-use plastic free events venue in 2019!  15 Hatfields have already reduced the use of single-use plastic from numerous products and services across our venue, including:
  • No plastic water bottles used, with only refillable and recycled glass bottles used since opening 
  • No plastic straws available in the venue, only ever using recyclable paper straws 
  • Free onsite water refill station, preventing the use of new single-use plastic bottles 
  • Raw cane sugar bought in 25kg paper sacks instead of smaller individual plastic packets 
  • Use of Teapigs tea bags, which are made from 100% compostable corn starch with packaging made from recycled card, vegetable inks and nature flex 

Future goals to accomplish with their suppliers include:  
  • Milk delivered and packaged in glass bottles or recycled cardboard, opposed to plastic cartons 
  • Finding a sustainable alternative to plastic cling film used for food and catering 
  • Completely removing the availability and use of any plastic eating utensils
