Vegware’s Carolyn wins silver medal at Gardening Scotland 2016

There are plenty of hidden talents in the Vegware team – and one of them just won an award! When she’s not crunching numbers in our Accounts team, Carolyn King has been honing her gardening skills. This weekend saw her and the Penicuik Horticultural Society win the silver award at the Gardening Scotland Festival for their sustainably minded masterpiece, complete with Vegware cups.

The piece was inspired by Major Tim Peake’s tour of duty to the International Space Station, and the beautiful images of Earth he shared from space. Using cups donated by our Community Fund,  recycled milk cartons, water bottles and discarded objects, the piece focuses on sustainable living and caring for the Earth’s ecosystem.

Well done Carolyn!
