This week on the podcast we hear from Xavier Baker, the Co-founder of the Isle of Wight Distillery - the home of Mermaid Gin, a proud sponsor of this year’s Blue Earth Summit.
Xav grew up on the Isle of Wight surrounded by the ocean and his love of the sea has travelled with him into adulthood. He tells host Laura why he’s so passionate about protecting his island home and the work he’s doing to make his business as sustainable as possible. He also discusses some of the challenges that go hand-in-hand with trying to create a plastic-free business.
We also hear about Xav’s plans to row 3,000 miles across the Atlantic unsupported, to raise awareness about ocean pollution and raise money for marine-focused environmental charities.

What is the Blue Earth Summit?
Blue Earth Summit is a movement. A dynamic mix of communities, redefining how we work and driven by a love for the outdoors. A new way to connect and regenerate our connection to our blue earth.
With our eclectic Bristol venue partners the Marble Factory and The Wave, October 2022 will see an extended programme over three days. Two days of inspirational content in central Bristol followed by a final day of activity-led networking at one of Europe’s premier sporting venues.
