ABOUT
THE EVENT

This Earth Day’s theme is Restore Our Earth so please join us for this inspiring webinar where we will introduce a few easy tips for a greener, more sustainable 2021 to help us restore our planet.

These small changes will benefit you, your family and are great for the planet too. The webinar will include introduction into reusable products with the focus to reuse before we recycle, best tips for repair & recycle, reducing food waste, becoming greener by eating more plants, composting at home, using greener energy and raising awareness about sustainability and restoring Mother Earth.

For some background, on April 22nd 1970, 20 million Americans took to the streets, parks, and auditoriums to demonstrate for a healthy, sustainable environment. Thousands of colleges and universities organised protests against the deterioration of the environment. This was the first Earth Day that led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species acts. In 1990 Earth Day went global, mobilising 200 million people in 141 countries and lifting the status of environmental issues onto the world stage. Earth Day 1990 gave a huge boost to recycling efforts worldwide and helped pave the way for the 1992 United Nations Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro.

Join us for this webinar and take away some easy tips to create a more sustainable 2021.

This event is taking place live from Dublin, Ireland. Please calculate the time difference if joining from elsewhere.

ZOE HERTELENDI

Sustainability Expert & Founder of Edamame Eco

Zoe worked in the fashion industry for over 13 years (Ted Baker) where she managed 150 people in the retail side of the business and opened numerous stores across Singapore, Ireland and Northern Ireland, France and Germany. After witnessing first-hand the greenwashing in the fashion industry, Zoe decided to leave and educate herself further at the Cambridge University for Sustainable Leadership in order to make positive changes better for the planet.

In 2015, Zoe and her husband opened a restaurant called Platform 61 in Dublin City Centre. It was the first sustainable restaurant focusing on not only locally sourced ingredients but also eliminating single use plastic from its operations. They were the first ones to ban plastic straws and take away coffee cups back in 2016. Platform 61’s success also comes from working together and promoting the local community through quirky events and collaborations with the local businesses, such as Roal Dahl themed brunch, Food porn with Yelp, Aungier Danger brunch, Vegan dinner and Vegan gluten free afternoon tea with Wild sage bakery and many more.

As sourcing of sustainable products for the restaurant became a business in itself, it was only natural that Edamame Eco was born through this, focusing on further promoting reusability, zero waste, circular economy and sustainability in everything they do.

Edamame Eco now specialises in corporate merchandise and gifting market and is on a mission to disrupt and fix the dirty traditional promotional products industry. All these traditional promotional merchandise is generally made from plastic, and is rarely recycled. Edamame Eco believe that companies that give away responsible products, long-lasting “gifts with a meaning” send a different message about their brand. If you believe in a sustainable future, value longevity and usefulness as well as brand loyalty and awareness, you naturally start to consider gifts worth giving.

Edamame Eco prioritise sustainability throughout the entire creation process. All products are made from sustainable materials such as bamboo, glass, stainless steel, silicone and paper. This is a massive shift in the promotional products industry and by making these changes, Edamame Eco believe they will create lasting effects for other businesses and brands and for the environment.
