Our only chance of ending the sixth mass extinction – which is reportedly already underway – is by coming together, acknowledging our role and uniting to change the future. 2017’s P.E.A. (People. Environment. Achievement.) Awards, in association with Octopus Energy, did just that.

At a glamorous green-carpet event in London’s Banking Hall on Friday 13 October, green heroes were recognised in a Mexican Day of The Dead-themed celebration, presented by eco-architect and designer Oliver Heath.

At a sit-down dinner attended by 250 of the most ethical, prestigious and fabulous guests, the ceremony honoured those who have dedicated their lives to ending the forces driving extinction – from deforestation abroad to over-consumption right here in the UK.

Individuals and teams in sectors ranging from arts to money received spectacular skull awards, designed and created by vintage jeweller Katie Weiner.

A new Green Pioneer award, sponsored by green beauty pioneer Weleda, marked the awards’ seventh birthday.

There was vegetarian food from award-winning caterers, goodies from The Raw Chocolate Co, Divine Chocolate, incognito and Re-wrapped, plus enough drinks from Juniper Green Organic Gin and Luscombe to sink an oil tanker.
