What are we doing?
We have already made a huge step to become more sustainable we have partnered with numerous companies & charities who are focused on creating a green future for all.
1. Nappy Recycling
We have partnered with Green Bottoms who are diverting as much waste as possible from landfill by working with Energy-from-Waste facilities around the country. With numerous projects now underway to either recycle this waste or convert it into energy, we are proud to be working with Green Bottoms.
2. Single Use Plastic Elimination
Close to all of our hearts is the damage that single use plastics are having on our oceans. We are committed to cutting out all of our single use plastics where possible by using eco-products and reusing products where possible. We are working with The Final Straw a group of people from all walks of life, who have come together as a community to minimise the amount of plastic entering our local seas.
3. Reuse. Recycle. Reduce
In all of our nurseries we reuse packaging, old toys, books etc. We believe up cycling items is a much better way to reduce waste than even recycling waste. This means giving a waste or old product i.e a box a new lease of life which could make a very useful tool for children play or education purposes. There is so many resources out there but we love the work of Upcycle That!
