Closed on bank holiday Monday 31st August

On Monday 31st August, Vegware will be shut. We will probably be looking at the weather and deciding it’s ice cream weather, come rain or shine. We hope you enjoy your bank holiday Monday, and we’ll look forward to speaking to you when we open again on Tuesday 1st September.

Vegware Community Fund – now relaunched!

What a great day! We marked the relaunch of our Vegware Community Fund yesterday by adopting a section of Edinburgh’s Union Canal! With a little help from our friends including Tollcross Primary School’s P5 and Scottish Waterways Trust, as well as folk from some of the projects we support. There was face painting, seed planting, our Bin Detective’s Recycling Challenge, a bumblebee survey and much more. And it was sunny!

Community Fund – Edinburgh Garden Partners – July Update

Here at EGP we are flat-out assessing gardens, recruiting volunteers and matching them up! Often by the time a call comes into us for help a garden can be ‘out of control’, we try and match a capable volunteer to the garden just as soon as we can but there can be several weeks delay. Thus we provide an ‘SOS’ service for gardens that need a bit of taming before the new volunteer can start working there. A team of dedicated souls typically arrive en masse with a large flask of tea and some treats (provided by us, of course!) and get to work clearing the space and returning it to it’s former glory.

The pictures show an example of a garden needing such attention and what it can look like just a short while later!

Thanks again to Vegware for helping us to provide training and materials for our volunteer gardeners to make such a transformation possible!

New Tutti Frutti ice cream spoons!

Love the high-street trend for bright colours? Meet our new Tutti Frutti ice cream spoons! At 3 inches, these candy coloured sampling spoons are perfect for ice cream or frozen yoghurt, and also great for a cheeky taste test! We’re also very pleased with our pastel pop art promotional film – have a look!

As always, they also have great eco benefits, being made of low carbon PLA – a plant-based material with 79% less carbon than plastic. Packs have a random selection of 6 colours: red and yellow and pink and green, orange and baby blue. A compostable rainbow!

Our HQ may be in Edinburgh, but our team are busy all over the UK. And now we are delighted to announce we have opened a small office in Bristol, to be a handy base for our Southern Sales team.

It’s in St Nicholas House, on High Street, right by St Nick’s market and Broadmead – a very central location. Here’s Teresa, Carol, Dom, Laura, Sarah and Harriet celebrating with some fizz on the shared rooftop garden. Cheers!
