Who We Are

we strive for a more Dynamic, Enjoyable & Prosperous Future.

 

Bright Green City is a Social Enterprise dedicated to creating a sustainable food system. We are passionate about local produce, businesses & communities

We formed in 2014 with the vision of making good, local food readily available to everyone

There is an abundance of local growers and producers around but the majority of the time when you buy food at a food establishment your produce has come from over seas or you just don’t know where!

We believe everyone has the right to know where their food comes from

Every year, tonnes of food being grown on smaller and independent farms is wasted for purely cosmetic reasons and because chefs simply don’t know how to source it or company regulations restrict who they can order from

We’ve created a simple system for food establishments to order produce from within a 50 mile radius and we’re dedicated to making sure everyone gets a fair deal

Farms can expand their customer base, restaurants have easy access to great local produce and the public know where their food comes from and that it has been produced ethically.

By buying locally we can massively reduce carbon emissions, encourage growth within the agriculture sector and the economy

Being sustainable is bigger than just shopping local 

It takes a huge amount of produce and energy to run any food establishment, they create a lot of waste and hire a lot of staff

This can often mean they also have a huge carbon footprint

If we don’t act now this damage will be irreparable

A big part of our mission is to channel as much of that energy as we can into doing good

We work with food establishment to create daily and long term practices, energy efficient regimes, waste systems and staff welfare practices that benefit everyone and improve profit margins 

 

Our time and profits are spent on projects that benefit communities across the world

We are setting up and collaborating with other organisations on projects that improve peoples quality of life from growing produce on the streets for communities to harvest themselves, to developing open source tech for developing countries

Our local and worldwide projects are run by volunteers from all walks of life with different skills and experiences
