Event: Suffolk's Greenest Pub and the 'Cradle 2 Cradle' Approach
Wednesday 25th May: 5.30 - 7.30pm (doors open at 5pm)
White Horse Pub, Edwardstone (nr. Boxford) CO10 5PX
The theme of the next SGBN event is the 'Cradle 2 Cradle' approach to green buildings (see: www.c2cn.eu) and what better location to talk about this than Suffolk's Greenest Pub 2011; The White Horse Inn in Edwardstone, set in the beautiful Suffolk countryside, near Boxford.
The Mill Green Brewery and the tied pub The Edwardstone White Horse (www.edwardstonewhitehorse.co.uk) are successful businesses that are showing that it is possible to run such enterprises in an ecologically responsible manner.
The brewery is built on the site of an old stable behind the traditional White Horse Inn at Edwardstone, Suffolk.
It has been built using only low embodied energy and local building materials and is designed to use renewable energy from solar and coppice wood from nearby woodlands.
Their beers use only pure ingredients, organic and locally sourced if available!
They have their our own organic malting barley & hops growing in nearby Chelsworth.
Those attending will be able to go on a tour of the brewery itself and enjoy its delightful beer at the bar!
‘Cradle to Cradle’ is a concept and framework that is currently gathering momentum across the globe. The focus is on maximising benefits rather than just minimising harm. By prioritising effective solutions over efficient solutions, it encourages us to consider the benefits we can create through design for our environment, society and the economy. Part of the work of the Cradle to Cradle Network has been to look at the application of this concept to the construction sector.
