Worksmith News: Farmwall Partnership 
At Worksmith we have been steadily changing our processes to ensure that we are doing everything we can to minimise environmental impact wherever possible. From removing our coffee waste from landfill through Reground, or using Sol Cups & Water Bottles to remove the need for disposable coffee cups.

With these ideas in mind it is with immense pride that we have partnered with Farmwall, a closed loop living wall system. We currently have a variety of greens grown on the wall in which the members use for their lunch or package up to take home. We are excited to have Farmwall join the Worksmith community where we will work together to grow their network.

Podcast: Monocle 24 The Entrepreneurs: Ben Branson, Seedlip
Ben Branson spent a decade working for creative agencies, helping other people to build their brands. But in 2014 he decided to put his skills to the test on his own project. That project was Seedlip, a non-alcoholic spirit born out of Branson’s passion for natural botanicals and hobby distilling. Seedlip has since become a huge success and is stocked in high-end London retailers and served in bars and restaurants across the globe. Branson explains how his experience designing toothpaste tubes helped him build the brand and reveals why he’s confident the market for non-alcoholic drinks is only just getting started.
