TENZING’s plant-based drink was inspired by Sherpa Tenzing Norgay – one of the first two men to summit Mount Everest – while the ingredients were inspired by the all-natural energising brews made by Himalayan Sherpas. Seven key natural ingredients are used: Himalayan rock salt, Indian gooseberry, lemon juice, green coffee, guarana, green tea and beet sugar. With a strong belief in Mother Nature and all-natural ingredients, TENZING re-invest 5% of all profits into the work they carry out. One of these projects – with the help of Tenzing Norgay’s son, Jamling – is helping to keep Mount Everest litter-free by placing sustainable bins along the trail.
Virgin Sport is working alongside Hackney Council, to encourage local residents and visitors to move through sport.
