The Source Bulk Foods

Proud sponsors of the People’s Choice Award

“The Source Bulk Foods is proud to be a first time sponsor of the Into the Blue category. As a business set-up around the need to protect our natural environment from single-use plastics the Into the Blue category is appropriate as so much man-made waste ends up in our oceans. At The Source we try to promote a positive message focused on enforcing the good that comes from people changing their habits. Similarly, we strongly believe that initiatives that highlight the majesty, beauty and awe of the natural world connect people to the environment, and in turn start them on a journey to consider the impact of our actions. Organisations such as DSWF and their work are inspiring and make us believe in the vision of a better world.”
