Here at Ecotricity, we love working with businesses who share the same values and ethos as us. Today, we’re thrilled to announce our new partnership with Made In Hackney – the plant-based, community cookery school.

Made In Hackney work with communities to help them stay healthy and happy by teaching them about planet-friendly food. It’s simple - they believe in healthy and affordable food that’s good for us and the world we live in.

When they opened in 2012, they were the UK’s first fully vegan community cookery school and charity. Since then, they have inspired many people to grow, cook and eat more plants. Like us, they know how a plant-based diet can combat climate change and they educate people about this. Our society can respond to the climate crisis by transitioning to a plant-centred diet.

They offer many different services to communities such as their community meal service, cooking classes and courses, team building events and their Plant Prospects programme. This programme offers support to organisations and businesses to help educate them on plant-based diets. We’re inspired by how they educate others about delicious plant-based food which is good for the planet, and we can’t wait to see how we can work together to create change.

Community Partnerships Manager, Sean O’Callaghan, said:

“Here at Made In Hackney we're absolutely thrilled to be partnering with Ecotricity. At Made In Hackney, we've always been passionate about creating a positive impact for people, animals, and the planet. What makes this partnership so exciting is our shared commitment to the environment and finding solutions that genuinely make a difference. We're on the same page with Ecotricity when it comes to caring for our planet and combating global warming. Together, we're gearing up to do some incredible things, and we couldn't be happier to team up with a company that shares our values. Let's make the world a better place, one sustainable choice at a time!”

Join our partners, Made In Hackney, at their fantastic festive market on Saturday 16 December from 11am to 4pm. Held at The Redmond Community Centre at Woodberry Down N4 2HF, this end of year celebration is not to be missed - and it’s free to go. It’s time to celebrate Christmas and the New Year with lots of great gift shopping, tasty food, live music and festive fun!

Climate Clock

The Climate Clock is a version of the Doomsday clock that has been running since 1947 - this tracks the risk of global man-made disaster, through man made technology (like nuclear weapons) - displaying the minutes and seconds left before midnight, when disaster strikes. The climate crisis is a small part of the calculations made.
The climate clock uses a similar approach, but, focuses only on the climate crisis - which is the biggest and most urgent existential threat we face.
"The Climate Clock is a countdown to the biggest man-made disaster we face - but also a measure by which we can track our progress - moving from fossil to renewable energy. It shows we have no time to lose - the clock is ticking…" Dale Vince, OBE.
