Greenhouse are excited about the momentum building around the launch of the Wonderwater Café in Shoreditch this Wednesday! On 2degrees, the 'How much water do you eat?' article is currently ranking as most read.
Hosted by Leila's Shop in Shoreditch (a local favourite), the café will explore issues surrounding the critical relationship between food and water, using delicious food and excellent design.
The Wonderwater café will be in London from 12th to 23rd September 2012 at Leila’s Shop, 17 Calvert Avenue, Shoreditch. Situated in the heart of the Shoreditch Design Triangle, the café's launch comes as London Design Festival 2012 begins, a festival bringing together the best and most innovative designers from around the world.
With creative, thought-provoking menus, designed especially for Wonderwater Café, guests will be offered another dimension to their meal decision: how much water do you eat? TreeHugger's How much water do you eat? The Wonderwater Café will tell you has been a very popular read.
Visitors to the Wonderwater Café at Leila’s Shop will be able to enjoy a mouth-watering selection of responsibly sourced food, while digesting information from the vibrant infographics, dynamic visual displays and raindrop-shaped blackboards, all of which convey mind-blowing facts and figures on the water footprint of its meals.
The displays will be integrated into the existing shop, with bespoke water footprint menus for the duration of the festival. Armed with this new information, consumers will leave the café more able to make informed and responsible choices in they way they buy and consume food.
