weareseventeen's Challenge


Based in London weareseventeen is a worldwide creative and production to brands and agencies such as Coca-Cola, Sheeba and the BBC. They have been working with First Mile since 2014.

As an office in the heart of Farringdon, weareseventeen needed regular collections that fit outside of standard working hours. They also required a solution for recycling food waste accumulated from staff lunches.


First Mile's Solution


We set up bi-weekly Mixed Recycling collections, early in the morning before the start of the working day to avoid disruption. We also implemented a Food Recycling stream so their staff can easily recycle food waste throughout the day without it becoming an inconvenience.

Overall, our tailored solutions have helped weareseventeen improve their sustainability and reduce their environmental impact.
