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.
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!
We are seeking a new client support advisor for a busy and varied role. We need someone who can work independently and as a member of the team to deliver high quality customer service and support the activities of our sales and administration staff.

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!
We are hiring! We are looking for a super dooper graphic design bod to join our Creative team and get busy with all the cool visual stuff we do – custom printing, point of sale material and all sorts of graphic projects.
This post is part-time, based in Edinburgh, working 3 days a week. The full details are on S1jobs – if you know someone who’d be perfect, share it!
Our new 4.5in teaspoons are still heat-proof to 85ºC, certified compostable, and still 100% plastic-free. These 4.5in spoons replace our 4in CPLA teaspoon, code VSP4.
- Now made from 100% recycled RCPLA material – 90% less carbon than plastic
- Longer handle, deeper spoon, better shape. So you can dig in to desserts or stir hot drinks!
Confused about these terms? Our new factsheet explains the important difference. On www.vegware.com/downloads it’s the last one under ‘factsheets’. Here’s some key info…
Oxo-degradable or degradable plastic =
oil based plastic + an additive to make it fragment in oxygen and sunlight
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!
We’re on ITV’s BBQ Champ tonight! Plus: new products including tutti frutti ice cream spoons, an Edinburgh festival banning polystyrene, and our new Bristol office…
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!
