Play It Green has teamed up with award-winning profit-for-purpose platform So Let’s Talk to help bring more mental, physical and financial support to those working in the hospitality sector.
Play It Green will now showcase So Let’s Talk as part of our overall Climate Positive Hospitality package in recognition of the challenges within the sector and the value they provide.
Set up by Patrick Howley who, after a long career in the hospitality industry fell into a destructive cycle of long hours, no sleep, poor nutrition, high alcohol consumption and recreational drug use.
After posting about his struggles on social media and getting an overwhelming response Patrick quickly found out he was not alone.
Play It Green’s Climate Positive Hospitality works with restaurants to help lower their carbon footprint, enhance their sustainability credentials and enable diners to plant two trees and regift vital funds to a local charity for just one pound on their bill.
Views From the Founders
Richard Dickson, Play It Green’s Co-Founder said:
“I have known about So Let’s Talk for some time and admired the work they do to support mental health in the hospitality industry.
When Play It Green decided to launch Climate Positive Hospitality, it made absolute sense to work with them and enable increased positive impact through partnership.
Together we will be stronger, engage more people and most importantly be able to make a positive difference to the planet and the communities in which we live.”
Paddy Howley, Founder of So Let’s Talk said:
“We are always looking for new ways to grow on our mission to ‘86 the silence’ around mental, physical & financial Health challenges within the industry. (86 is a hospitality term for “getting rid of something”)
Having partners with amazing values like Play it Green’s Positive Hospitality campaign are vital to our collective goals of improving the overall health of the industry. The synergy of both organisations meant the partnership was a natural one to get on board with.
We work on giving people what they want not what we think that they need, and what people want is a more sustainable, happier and healthier industry.
Health goes beyond just the physical and being able to provide support on mental health, alongside the work Play it Green do for the community and the environment means we are heading for a better industry for both teams and guests.”
So Let’s Talk works with experts in sleep, mental health, nutrition, exercise, finance and beyond to deliver education, events, and support for the benefit of people working in the hospitality industry. They work with some of the biggest brands in the UK are now planning solutions for all businesses as mental health becomes more and more important.
Play It Green will be launching Climate Positive Hospitality in the run-up to Christmas enabling diners to make an environmental and social impact for just one pound on their bill by planting two trees and regifting 10% of this to a good cause of the restaurant’s choice.
In return, the restaurant gets free access to a host of net zero and marketing support, and now through So Let’s Talk, access to mental health support.
