The Virtual Conscious Festival

Alas, a huge sector that Covid-19 has hugely impacted is festivals. So although bringing an annual festival to life this year had its challenges, the team at Green Is The New Black worked their magic and BAM! The first Virtual Conscious Festival was born! For the very first time, the signature event moved digitally to the event platform, Hopin, which allowed conscious goers to explore the virtual zones from the comfort of their own home.

Our very own founder, Yumika Hoskin also co-hosted the event on 2 of the 3 days. The virtual zones included mindful workshops, a marketplace, zero waste food delivery and of course, talks with experts from all over the world. 

Peco Bag is always proud to be part of a social movement of inspiring, empowering and helping take action towards saving the planet.

Less than 1 percent of single use plastic bags are recycled. They are most often made from Polyethylene that takes centuries to degrade.

This year 5 trillion plastic bags will be consumed. That is 160,000 plastic bags produced every second.

It takes up to 1,000 years for a plastic bag to break down. On average, a plastic shopping bag is used for just 12 minutes.
