In the café, takeaway cups, all made from bio-degradable materials, ensuring we keep our use of single-use plastics to a minimum.
Where possible we are using paper bags instead of plastic where possible.
We are also reducing the amount of single use plastic wrapping, for example removing cello bags from greeting cards.
We encourage all staff to ‘think before they print’ and visitors are now able to show there tickets on their mobile devices rather than having to print.
