We’re thrilled to announce that thanks to Square Root and their Black Friday Sale….. a whopping 90 strawberry plants will be making their way to Barking and Dagenham, so that we can grow, harvest and process local strawberries together in 2021.
This year, Square Root are using Black Friday as an opportunity to do something different. 2020 has had a huge impact on people’s lives, and Square Root really wanted to find a way of using this momentum to do something positive during Black Friday weekend. Which is why we’ve (again) joined forces, to raise money for our latest Lockdown Harvest. Read their blog on the collaboration here.
For every purchase made on Square Root’s website, between Thursday 26th November and 1st December, they’ll be donating 10% towards Company Drink’s Strawberry Plant Project. That means that for every bottle of fizzy pop purchased, customers will be helping us to grow, pot, deliver, harvest and process together….. Here’s a video from Shaun explaining a little bit more!
We’ve been working with Square Root for a long time…. we first approached them back in 2014 when looking for someone to help take some produce we had collected with local residents, and turn it into pop for us to sell.
Every year (except 2020) Square Root have helped us make Barking & Dagenham drinks like Elderflower Fizz, Strawberryade, BAD Cola, Green Hop Tonic, and Blackcurrant Ade. We’ve always loved bringing local pickers to Square Root’s Soda Works, for example the young people from projects like Molecular Fizz; we always have a lot of fun rolling up our sleeves up and getting stuck in with helping to make exciting, new soda flavours together!
If you’re a regular stockist of Company Drinks sodas and have missed this year’s crop of Cola, Green Hop Tonic and other seasonal flavours, this is a GREAT way to get your hands on delicious new flavours while supporting our local Lockdown Harvests!
