RIZ BOARDSHORTS

 

Discovered for their eye catching designs, these well made, stylish shorts are made from recycled plastic bottles. The London-based founders set out to create ‘The most beautiful and sustainable swim shorts in the world'. They define the

designs as ‘British-Hawaiian style' and these are digitally printed on to the shorts in the UK. Their Rizcycle scheme allows you to return your old shorts in return for a discount off your next pair. Style with an eco-conscience - win win!

COCONUT

 

The UK based current account for freelancers, self-employed people and small business owners. It takes care of your accounting and tax. But that description really doesn’t do it justice. Features customers love include: prediction of tax owed so that you can put aside enough money to pay that dreaded tax bill (no more manual spreadsheets and online tax calculators); expense tracking, even prompting you to take a picture of a receipt when you spend and advice on what you can claim for (checking online forums for what you can claim for is a real time suck!); invoicing facilities that look professional so that you can keep all your finances in one place and the ability to export your data so that you can send it to your accountant (if you even need one after you’ve got Coconut!). It’s great to see a truly specialised banking product that fixes real customer problems and gives valuable time back to its customers.

MONARCH CLOTHES

 

Adaptive clothing for seniors, people with disabilities, injuries and those who use wheelchairs. Based in Waterloo Ontario, Monarch makes comfortable,

adaptive clothing. The range includes clothes that slide on from the front, open back tops, trousers that allow easy changing of incontinence briefs or work well with wheelchair users.

 

Whilst most clothes are designed with the assumption that everyone can dress themselves, this brand really turns that assumption on its head and puts itself in the customer’s position.

WOLF OF WALL STREET IMMERSIVE THEATRE (LONDON)

 

Who didn’t want to be a fly on the wall in the Wolf of Wall Street party scenes? Immersive theatre done well is heartpoundingly fun! Never mind the edge of your seats, you are on the edge of reality. We can’t think of a better

immersive theatre experience. We are expecting the ultimate outrageous behaviour along with the hideous 90s

attire! (Just don’t be a wolf back in the office!!) The experience comes to London Autumn 2019.

VIRGIN DEPARTURE BEACH

 

Driven by the insight that nobody wants to spend the last day of their holiday waiting for the coach to the airport, Virgin Holidays has launched its first departure beach in Barbados. You arrive at the beach-side lounge and check in your luggage (looks just like check in at the airport) and then your luggage heads off to the airport whilst you hang out at the beach! An ultra modern, air conditioned beach-view lounge awaits you with drinks and snacks and a games room for the kids. On the beach, towels and sun beds await you, whilst back at the lounge showers and bags

for your wet swimmers are provided. Shortly before your flight you are whisked off to the airport, boarding pass in hand, and you head straight to security.
