On Sunday the 15th June 2014 it was Global Wind Day – a worldwide event discovering wind, its power and the possibilities it holds to change our world. To celebrate this Renewable UK, the leading not for profit renewable energy trade association, asked us to be part of ‘Works of Wind’ – A pop-up event inspired by wind power and ethical fashion and art.
The event was held on Thursday 19th June at the Nancy Victor Gallery and sustainable designers, artists and other companies were invited to display their work. People Tree and the other companies at the event have a shared goal, to look out for the environment and making the world a cleaner and friendlier place.
Other designers at the event were Mark Beesley, an artist and illustrator who uses wind turbines for the source of his inspiration and creates beautifully striking paintings; Environmental Justice Foundation, a non-profit organisation working to protect the environment and defend human rights; Cock and Bull, an up-and-coming sustainable menswear brand and neighbour to us at our East London office; South London Saddles, who provide handmade leather custom bicycle seats; and What Daisy Did, a young inspirational couple who have turned their experience travelling India into an eco-friendly, Fair Trade business venture, making exquisitely crafted bags.
It was lovely to see all these designers supporting the event too and great to get to speak to members of the public about our work and share the message of the importance of sustainability.
