Last year’s ceremony took place in the United States in Boston, when guests arrived in hybrid vehicles and were encouraged to wear vintage, recycled or reusable clothing. Award-winning Kate wore a lime green Solace London dress rented from fashion platform Hurr and paired it with an emerald choker worn by Princess Diana.
William said Earthshot was inspired by John F Kennedy’s Moonshot program, which challenged America to put a man on the moon and helped launch the moon landing in 1969. The year’s winners latest included a British start-up, Notpla, which uses seaweed to make packaging.
