Career Snapshot:

Kresse Wesling is Co-Founder of Elvis & Kresse. Since 2005 Elvis & Kresse have been rescuing raw materials, transforming them into luxury lifestyle accessories and donating 50% of profits back to charities.In 2005 we had a chance encounter with the London Fire Brigade. When we learned that London’s damaged decommissioned hoses were headed to landfill we mounted a rescue. We set up Elvis & Kresse to save it. For over a decade none of London’s fire-hose has gone to landfill and over 170 tons of material has been reclaimed. In 2017 the Burberry Foundation partnered with Elvis & Kresse to tackle the even greater global problem of leather waste. This Five-year partnership will see at least 120 tonnes of leather off-cuts from Burberry recrafted into new luxury items, designed and sold by Elvis & Kresse.

My Tip of the Day:

Do More, Be Better

What do you love most about Your City?

We don’t live in a city and there is so much to love about that – the real darkness, the quiet, the fresh air, the wildlife, the water that makes up 180 degrees of our view, the places to run and walk with our dog…

Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?

Some kind of oatmeal or muesli at my desk.

What are you doing at:

6:00 AM – Sleeping or running or cross training.

10:00 AM – Working – either in the workshop or out at meetings

12:00 PM – Favorite Lunch spot/meal?

My favourite spot is just outside our workshop on a sunny summer day, looking over the mill pond at the ducks. Lunch is almost always a cheese sandwich or leftovers.

7:00 PM –  Just getting back from a long walk with Elvis & Monty (our dog).

11:00 PM – Heading to bed.

What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?

Water. I like other drinks of course, but water is all I need.

Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?

WhatsApp – it is the best way to stay in touch with friends and family, particularly in small groups.

What should everyone try at least once?

Something they never thought they would be capable of.

Where do you enjoy getting lost?

When I am running – pretty much anywhere in the world. I really love not quite knowing how long I will be, where I am, how I will get back and how much help I might need in order to do that. My sense of direction is not spectacular.
