The event has been devised by 24-year-old Jade Mitchell who received a a grant from vcashpoint through v, the youth volunteering charity.
"Earlier this year I spent ten weeks in Nepal, helping to build a school and teaching the local school children English," says Jade.
"I was impressed by the Nepalese and how they wasted nothing, and valued everything. I wanted to bring this ethos back home to London, and the Borough and Bankside area."
Why hold the event in Southwark?
"First and foremost because I grew up in Southwark, and it's where my heart lies. That said, Southwark only recycles 14.28 per cent of its waste, which is low compared to other boroughs."
