How renewable can we really be? - with Kresse Wesling
By Blue Earth Summit
"How renewable can we really be?"
Did you know that the reason the global standard length for a fire hose is 22 metres long because the shed in Yorkshire they were first made in was 23 metres long? Did you also know that for the last decade, over 300 tonnes of old fire hose has been saved from a fate of landfill...and made into luxury accessories...
Kresse Wesling and her team at Elvis & Kresse, are changing the world one old fire hose at a time. With society somewhat in an environmental rut, Wesling and her team intend to transform eco-efficiency around the globe. From cleaning up our streets, to reducing climate change, Kresse believes in a cleaner and more sustainable future for all. In the UK, its estimated that 16 million aluminium cans, and 16 million plastic containers are littered in public spaces every year. Before you know it, we’ll be swimming in waste! To find out how Kresse and her team are developing innovative avenues to maximise materials and renewable energy, look no further. Don’t drop that coke can…have a listen to this.
The Blue Earth Summit is a movement and community driving positive action for our natural world.
In October 2021, we brought together over 800 changemakers, business leaders, content creators and activists for our inaugural Blue Earth Summit event in Bristol. It involved 2 days of talks, workshops, inspiring conversations and outdoor activities around 3 big ideas:
Living and working sustainably
Protecting our outdoor playgrounds
And Inspiring a healthy outlook
This podcast shares those ideas with you by bringing you the best talks and panel discussions from Blue Earth Summit Year 1 at The Old Marble Factory
