Although we’re currently in South-East Asia, let me bring you to sunny (!) & disruptive Brighton. Back in Spring, we went on a four-day trip to London to see our beautiful friend Ariane. One night we also went for dinner with another friend, Vicky, one of my best friends from high school, and her boyfriend at their very stylish new apartment in East London. While catching up, we ended up talking about the “zero-waste” movement and how Julian and I were implementing it into our lifestyle. This conversation reminded me of how much I wanted to visit Brighton to try out the eco-friendly restaurant, Silo. That’s when my friend brought in the good news! I was pleased to hear that Brighton was easily reachable by train in an hour or so from London, we really hadn’t thought about it. Without thinking any further we hopped on a train the next day. And here is my little eco, fair & pastel guide of Brighton.

Silo, Brighton | Eco-friendly restaurant

We arrived at noon, empty and hungry bellies, in front of the giant 39 black and white wall. We had found it! Silo Brighton! I was curious to discover their eco-friendly minimalistic and modern design and delicious food. Below you will find the initiatives that make Silo an eco-friendly restaurant:

  • local & seasonal food {cutting food miles & over-processing that help reducing carbon footprint & keeps the good nutrients}
  • up-cycled furniture {e.g. using old jars as glasses}
  • no plastic {e.g. using stainless steel straws}
  • achieving zero-waste {e.g. products delivered in re-usable containers}
  • urban compost {shared aerobic digester that can be used by local residents or other businesses}

On Poppy’s recommendation, the restaurant manager, I let myself be surprised by this strange dessert above… I didn’t know the taste of sea buckthorn and the name “jelly” didn’t sound very attractive to me. Well, sometimes it’s nice to step out of the chocolate comfort zone.
This sea buckthorn jelly and granita, topped with brown butter mousse and pine was one of the most delicious desserts I ever had. It was refreshing and light on the palate, sweet and tart flavoured. I hope they still have it on the menu for you to try!

The Fair Shop, Brighton | Ethical Fashion

Just before going to Brighton, I did some research on where to find sustainable fashion. That’s how I discovered The Fair Shop showcasing ethical fashion brands like People Tree or Swedish Stocking. I couldn’t resist the linen white dress from Lemuel MC, perfect for summer days {last seen here and here}. The dress was made in London out of dead stock highest quality linen.

Pastel Cabins & Ethical Outfit | Brighton by the sea

After strolling the city center we walked along the seaside where we found a rainbow of pastel cabins. Although it was a beautiful sunny Sunday it was still windy and a bit chilly. I was wearing this ruffle pullover {last seen HERE}, a cashmere scarf made in Burano (Italy), Armedangels navy Lyocell trousers, Veja sneakers and Freitag bag.
