Power of One

Power of one logo

Small changes. Big differences.

The Power of One campaign energises retailers and consumers to take small steps to change the world. Using our influence to effect change in the industry, Spring Fair and Hyve Group UK has committed to three pledges for 2022. Conscious decisions are the future of retail. Power of One is here to shape that future, one decision at a time.

Make your pledge today

Post your badge back: At all entrances you will find recycling bin where you can recycle your badge and also vote for the pledge you would like to make for 2022 and beyond.

Stay hydrated on the go: Keep on the lookout for our Refillable Water Stations located around the show, so you can refill your water bottles on the go reducing the amount of plastic bought.

Pass It On

#PassItOn

#PassItOn has the circular economy at its heart. By giving customers more power to reuse, repair and recycle their best-loved items, retailers can do more to protect the planet. #PassItOn gives products a second lease of life, reducing the impact on finite resources and encouraging customers to seek sustainable alternatives.

Do you need it

#DoYouNeedIt

#DoYouNeedIt showcases the power that small steps have to make a huge change. With up to 94% of all paper receipts binned, the retail industry must do more to combat overproduction. #DoYouNeedIt encourages retailers to offer their customers options such as email receipts, reducing our reliance on paper and plastic.

Checking In

#CheckingIn

Retail workers are the beating heart of our industry, which is why we’re #CheckingIn. Our pledge asks staff the questions that matter, from time off to a healthy work/life balance. As we recover from the pandemic, there has never been a more pertinent time to prioritise mental health in retail.

Power of one Brands/ Suppliers

Looking for a brand that is conscious of their environmental impact, employees wellbeing, biodegradable material or sustainable packaging? Look no further. The Spring Fair Sustainability Trail highlights brands and suppliers striving to do their part to ensure a more sustainable and ethical future for all. From sourcing materials and manufacturing to the final product and packaging, we recognise that brands and suppliers are shifting their focus, and we want to celebrate and highlight these brands.

Follow the green leaf icon at the show in your Little Black Book, Show Guide and You Are Here boards as well as on the exhibitor stands to identify these brands onsite.
