London’s Studio 338 Launches Eco-Conscious Clubbing Initiative

One of London’s largest clubs, the 3,000 capacity Studio 338, has announced it will be implementing an array of different measures that aim to vastly reduce its environmental impact, including donating profits and encouraging artists to donate a percentage of their fees to the conservation charity Rainforest Trust UK. The south east London venue will also be commissioning a huge ‘Tree of Life’ installation in the garden using reclaimed materials. Partygoers can then donate towards the tree which helps to place existing areas of rainforest under permanent protection via Rainforest Trust UK.  On top of this, Music and Events Director Dan Perrin says they also have a plan to remove all single-use plastics, non-biodegradable and environmentally harmful materials from the group’s venues where possible and are consulting with environmental specialists to improve their overall footprint. Dan says:  We are creating a movement aimed at leading the way for sustainable clubbing, kicking off in Studio 338 with a view to starting a wave of change reaching far beyond London. We’re in the midst of a climate emergency. We …

This has been shown to help reduce levels of stress hormones while boosting the feel-good hormones such as dopamine and endorphins associated with improving sleep, relaxation, pain relief and fast recovery from illness. Company founder Tom Euinton, said, “After struggling with sleep apnea and insomnia for a long time, I received profound rest from floating that helped provide the deep recovery I wasn’t getting from sleep. Up to 50% of people in the UK suffer from insomnia at least once a week, and it has since been my aim to bring the best floatation therapy and support to those struggling with these conditions”. The spacious pods at Float Hub are state of the art to provide the …
