High streets beyond waste: Get started

09:30 - 11:30 | 13 February 2024 | Online

Join ReLondon for a free-of-charge, online, interactive workshop, perfect for high street businesses who want to stand out from the crowd!

Learn from ReLondon’s expert advisors how your business could benefit from using ‘stuff’ more wisely to cut costs; win new customers, grow sustainably and thrive.

Explore practical and relevant solutions for your business such as making use of waste materials, reusable packaging, refills for food or cleaning products, repair services, recycled homeware, rentable jewellery and clothing, sharing space, and more!

Be inspired by real life examples and start thinking of ideas for our ‘High streets beyond waste’ grant scheme coming in Feb 2024.

What’s on?

In this exploratory session you will:

Explore your environmental impact as a business and why it matters
Discover the commercial and operational benefits of being better with the ‘stuff’ you buy, make, use and dispose of
Find ways to reduce waste, cut costs and create new money-making products and services by using stuff wisely
Get a head start on thinking of waste-busting activities to be funded with a ‘High streets beyond waste’ grant coming in Feb 2024
Meet other like-minded businesses starting the same journey

If you are a high street business ready to get started, we want to hear from you!

How to join?

Once you sign up, we’ll ask you to complete our full registration form so we can double-check eligibility and make sure the workshop is relevant to you. Once we’ve confirmed that, we’ll share the link to the workshop with you.

Who can join?

To be eligible, you must be a London-based, small or medium-sized high street business (fewer than 250 employees) in one of the following categories:

Food & drink businesses – sit down or takeaway (e.g. pubs, cafes, takeaways)
Retail businesses (e.g. shops selling clothes, electricals, food)
Hair & beauty salons (e.g. hairdressers, barbers, nail salons)
Other high street services (e.g. dry cleaners, opticians, pharmacies)
*The workshop is for businesses that are brand new to the circular economy – if you’re already doing something circular, like refill or repair, you can apply to join our circular SME community. Read more about ReLondon’s circular business models here.
