We’re big fans of our local beach, so this summer, we’re raising funds to help clean it up. From 28th June until 31st July, Wahaca Brighton is raising funds for local beach clean and eco-awareness initiatives the Brighton Dolphin Project, Plastic Free Brighton and Plastic Free Pledge – and you can get involved just by eating tacos!
GRILLED MACKEREL TACO
Created exclusively to raise funds for our Brighton beach clean campaign this taco is made from sustainably sourced grilled mackerel and topped with shredded slaw, habanero mayo & pink pickled onions.
Look out for it at our Brighton restaurant from 28th June –31st July. For each one sold, we’ll donate £1 to our beach clean fund
BRIGHTON TACO GIVEAWAY
Our taco van will be pitched up on New Road outside our Brighton restaurant between 12-3pm on Friday 28th June – come down for live music and free tacos! If you like them, we’ll ask for a £1 donation, all of which goes to our local charity fund.
KIDS EAT (ALMOST) FREE
Kids love our build-your-own tacos and quesadillas – and we’re inviting them to eat (almost) for free, when they’re eating with a paying adult, from 28th June to 31st July. We’re asking for a £1 donation for each kids’ meal sold, which goes to our beach clean fund.
WAHACA’S BRIGHTON BEACH CLEAN
Join us on Sunday 21st June, where we invite you to gather your friends and family to help clean up Brighton Beach.
Meet us at Hove Lawns beside the peace statue from 10am-12pm, where we’ll provide all the equipment you need – just bring a bottle of water. All volunteers will be rewarded with a free taco voucher, and there’ll be live music and guacamole and chips to keep hungry cleaners fuelled.
Why are we doing this?
Sustainability has always been integral to what we do at Wahaca, from recycling all our food waste, becoming the UK’s first carbon neutral restaurant group back in 2016, or by working with local charities, suppliers and artists. In Brighton, we’ve long been aware of the issues with more and more waste turning up on the beach – and we want to do our bit to make people aware of this, and help everyone take responsibility for where waste goes and what we use to transport things around.
What will happen to the rubbish we collect?
We’re teaming up with local artist Claire Potter to create a unique artwork for Wahaca Brighton, made from waste collected on the day. Any excess waste will be recycled or burned to create energy.
And what do you get?
Apart from feeling good about doing your bit for your local beach, we’ll also give everyone a taco voucher to redeem at Wahaca Brighton over the next few months, where you’ll also hopefully get to see Claire’s artwork on display. Guacamole and chips (all vegan!) will be on hand on the day for hungry waste collectors.
We look forward to seeing you on the day
