FOOD: Bigger than the Plate exhibition at the V&A


Newly launched at the V&A, this exhibition will open your eyes to sustainability within the food industry and what we can do to work towards a more sustainable food future. A few of our team had the honor of visiting the exhibition recently, and as sustainability is a big passion for our staff at People Tree, it was very exciting to discover more ways to implement our core values, not just through the clothes we make (at People Tree) and wear, but in another very big aspect of our lives; our food choices.


From food packaging and sustainable farming, to recycling food waste into toilets, eye-glasses, and works of art, it’s an exhibition not to be missed. 


Highlights from the Exhibition

A multi-sensory exhibition that unwraps the global food chain. Can what we eat be more sustainable, just and delicious?

One of a collection of images of women celebrating eating in public, defiant against body shamers.

Merdacotta is a beautiful kind of Italian clay made from, to put it delicately, cow manure. 

Mushrooms are growing live inside the exhibition, as an example of closed loop food chain. They are growing from bags filled with waste coffee grounds from the V&A’s cafe. When they are fully grown they will be put into dishes served in the cafe too.

This project explores how the city and farm can collide to create a new sustainable environment.
