The Wombles exhibit at Brand Licensing Europe with a stand made of recycled materials

The Wombles reintroduced themselves at Brand Licensing Europe in London, the leading event for businesses looking to discover the most sought-after brands and characters available for licensing.

They showcased their environmental message with an exhibition stand made of reused and recycled objects, including some huge Womble figures made from natural materials.

They also displayed some of the new range of sustainable outdoor furniture from Environmental Street Furniture (ESF).

The Wombles are back! Come see how we created a sustainable activation from fully found & recycled objects at this week’s Brand Licensing Europe. Warm fuzzies that feel good & ARE good?! That’s a win-win!! #BLE2023 #Sustainability #BrandActivation #Innovation

Their company profile said:

The Wombles are the original environmental champions. This year marks the 50th anniversary of their first television appearance. Right from the beginning the Wombles’ adventures involved recycling and reusing the discarded things left behind by humans. Since being brought out of hibernation they have inspired a new generation with their positive environmental message. They have featured in campaigns for the Great British Spring Clean, recycling, tree planting, beach cleaning and upcycling and were the UK government’s mascots at COP26. The Wombles want to become the standard bearers for sustainability within the licensing industry.

As I was already in London I went to Brand Licensing Europe yesterday - which was er… different. If I wanted to create a collection of greeting cards based on Pokémon, Teenage Mutant Turtles, or cartoon dolls with huge made-up eyes, this would be the place to go. Those who know us will not be surprised to learn this is not the kind of products we plan to explore. It just felt so corporate, plastic, soul-less. However there was one delight amongst all the oversized plasma screens, Wombles! I adored Wombles as a child and their stand was entirely made of recycled stuff / junk or natural materials. Best of all were the Wombles made from dried flowers, seedheads and mosses. “We were green before green was a thing”

We met Biz Sutton after she made a huge Womble from recycled materials. Biz then borrowed her dad’s old Wombles T-shirt to wear at the top of Kilimanjaro 19340 ft above sea level. Any Womble memories out there? ⛰ - Great Uncle Bulgaria
