Lana Baker-Cowling, Class of 2017 (2004-17) is a junior sustainability consultant at Anthesis. Here’s her ideal day – with a sustainable twist.
Drink coffee, save the world
Kiss the Hippo in Fitzrovia is a carbon-negative coffee shop – they ethically source coffee, use renewable energy and recycle grounds into biofuel. And their pastries taste amazing, too.
I love browsing Brick Lane and Old Spitalfields markets to pick up vintage second-hand clothes. Make sure you check out the amazing street art or grab lunch from the variety of food stalls.
Expand your mind

Soak up the stunning sight of Battersea Park at sunset as the Thames reflects the changing sky, or head to St James’ Park where the water also has beautiful reflections of London’s big landmarks.
For a special occasion, visit Pied à Terre, the longest-standing independent Michelin-starred restaurant in the UK which also has the top-rated vegan tasting experience in the country.
