Our Favourite Brands From This Year’s Balance Festival

For wellness warriors, foodies and fitness fanatics, Balance Festival is the destination to explore brands promoting healthy and sustainable lifestyles. Balance Festival returned to the streets of Shoreditch last weekend to bring together inspiring brands and conscious consumers committed to achieving a better self.
We attended Balance Festival this year and got to discover both upcoming and established direct-to-consumer brands transforming the wellness and sustainability space. Here are the top brands that stood out to us at Balance Festival this year.

Ful Foods is bringing balance to your soda craving with plant-friendly, superfood-infused drinks.

FUL® superfood benefits the body through its anti-inflammatory, energising, immune-boosting and hydration properties. Not only can you balance your health with Ful Foods, but also your environmental impact. FUL® Superfood converts CO2 into oxygen, acting as a CO2 store rather than as an emitter.
