Tipis on the Green is London’s first sustainable Christmas pop-up. The pop-up is presented by Raw Tipis who are committed to reducing environmental impact and have carefully considered every service and product. Electric generators are used across the venue, omitting zero emissions. Compost toilets significantly reduce water consumption. Many of the decorations and furniture are pre-loved and upcycled in Raw Tipis workshop. Food waste and all biodegradable containers and utensils are turned into compost.
Tipis on the Green brings one of the city’s natural spaces to life through responsible events for the community and beyond. Raw Tipis sustainability values are reflected throughout with the added mission of bringing the local community together at Christmas. The pop-up is raising funds for local community charity Hammersmith & Fulham Giving.
Each morning local businesses, community groups, charities and non-profits deliver a programme of free events to unite the community and inspire conscious choices at Christmas time. These activities reflect Tipis on the Green sustainability ethos with immersive activities such as community socials, climate meetups, art classes, clothes swaps, repair workshops, wellbeing classes and more.
Food and drinks brands across the venue reflect Tipis on the Green sustainable ethos and many of them are certified B Corps. Local business Prime Time lager uses one of the most energy-efficient and innovative brewers in the UK. Pimantae tequila-based cocktails work with a family-run tequila producer and donate profits to an organisation working with rural communities in Mexico.
