Conscious Sustainable Choices
All Yellowave merchandise clothing and staff clothing comes under the Earth Positive Climate Neutral label and is made from 100% organic cotton with 90% Reduced CO2.
The carbon footprint was calculated in accordance with BSI PAS2050 methodology, and certified by the Carbon Trust Certifications.
The 90% reduction has been achieved by a combination of low-impact organic farming, efficiency in manufacturing and transportation, and the use of renewable energy instead of the fossil fuel based grid electricity.
It has been calculated that a single EarthPositive T-shirt saves around 7 kilograms of CO2, whereas a hooded sweatshirt saves up to 28 kgs of greenhouse gases. These are actual reductions achieved in the manufacturing, without any carbon offsetting.
Yellowave Clothing can be bought at the venue.

Yellowave buys it’s coffee from local coffee roasting company Red Roaster. Red Roaster is named as one of the top 20 sustainable business in the UK. The coffee blend sold at Yellowave is Organic and comes from Columbia and Peru. The team at Red Roaster are passionate about always negotiating a fair price for the high quality coffee they buy. They go further than Fairtrade agreements to reward and incentivise the farmers they work with to produce the finest quality. They are the only certified Organic roastery in the South. To receive the organic certification everything is traceable from the point of origin to how it arrives in the UK.
Yellowave general waste

Where possible Yellowave buys and supports local independent businesses. From the wine supplied by Quaff to the meat supplied by local butcher Seckers – our preference is always independent. Yellowave has also started looking at the Scope 3 carbon impact of our food in terms of assessing what we offer and how much carbon in creates. One of our latest changes is removing beef from our menu. As the largest carbon producing food it was an easy choice. Our next steps will be to look in greater depth at all aspects of our menu and work out the carbon footprint of each item we sell.
