Social Supermarket teams up with what3words to deliver picnic hampers
Get hampers delivered to a what3words address this National Picnic Week, 21st – 27th June.
what3words has partnered with Social Supermarket so Londoners can order a selection of ethically sourced treats right to their picnic blanket. Find the perfect spot in Finsbury Park or Brockwell Park and order a hamper straight to its what3words address.
what3words has divided the world into 3 metre squares and given each square a unique combination of 3 random words – a what3words address. For example, one of Finsbury Park’s entrances can be found at ///bikes.wallet.minds
Parks cover large unaddressed areas so giving a specific delivery point can be difficult. Social Supermarkets’s partnership with what3words means that people will be able to have their picnic hamper delivered to a precise location. Plus, it means there’s no need to carry heavy bags in the heat or worry about forgetting something.
Chris Sheldrick, Co-founder and CEO of what3words. “Consumer expectations for on-demand deliveries are rising. They expect fast deliveries, to more adventurous locations, and without having to pick up the phone to give directions —Social Supermarket’s partnership with what3words helps to exceed those expectations.”
All deliveries are fulfilled by zero-emissions courier Hived and come with compostable bags for waste, making the picnic responsible as well as convenient! Also, 5% of sales on Social Supermaket’s picnic hampers will go towards Hubbub and Keep Britain Tidy, helping to keep our green spaces and waterways clear of litter.
As an additional celebration, Social Supermarket is asking Londoners to participate in its #litterpickforpicnics campaign, aimed at tackling waste in London’s green spaces. As part of the campaign, Social Supermarket is giving away 80 bespoke picnic boxes containing treats from several inspiring social enterprise brands. Here’s what you need to know to enter:
