The World’s Most Ethical Bar

Yes! You read that right. Better World Bars are revolutionalising the drinks industry one tipple at a time. Their motto is ‘profit over planet’ and when you book them to create your wedding bar not only will guests be drinking ethically sourced and made drinks, they’ll be donating to charity at the same time. Founder Randy Rampersad explains: “You’ve heard of The Queen Vic, well originally I set up The Green Vic, a pop-up pub aiming to be the most ethical pub in the UK. It was a huge success but it made me realise how important our service was, it was more than just a slogan. I’m passionate about the planet and want to do whatever I can to help the Earth and the people that live on it.” So how does ethical drinking work and what can you expect when you hire Better World Bars for your wedding? Randy explains: “All the drinks we serve are made ethically and mostly that means they are being created through social enterprises and even charities. But don’t worry we still have a huge amount of choice, our menu has over 400 drinks including all the usual wines, beers, bubbles and soft drinks; they’ve just been sourced and made differently.”

The charity angle of the business is also impressive as Randy explains: “At every event we do, for every sale of a drink, money is donated directly to charity. We support a number of different charities. At the end of your wedding, we can tell you exactly how that money will help, it could for example, be an environmental charity and we can tell you how many trees can be grown, or if it’s a homeless charity we can say how many people we can help.”

There are two types of bars available for hire, a classic wooden bar made from eco-sourced materials, or their new TV screen bar which is a wall of televisions where your own visuals can be projected such as old photos and videos. Randy adds: “Weddings are fun occasions but they’re also a great opportunity for a large number of people to make a difference in the world. I hope the ethical approach to our business will change the way people plan their events and we’re looking forward to bringing our delicious drinks and party spirit while raising money for good causes all over the UK.”
