Tops Day Nurseries Havant have recently achieved the Plastic Free Schools title and are the first early years setting in the UK to do so!
Having already been recognised as one of the South’s leading eco-sustainable childcare providers, Tops Havant worked towards five objectives in order to gain their new accreditation, awarded by Surfers against Sewage as part of their innovative education programme.
As the UK’s first plastic free nursery, Tops Havant have pledged to remove at least three single-use plastics in the nursery day, organise at least two ‘Trash Mobs’ per year and continue to inspire and educate the Tops Day Nurseries family to eliminate single-use plastics from their lives.
As well as organising beach cleans, banishing single-use plastic and writing to top brands to learn more about their packaging waste, Tops Havant also raised the issue to local MP Alan Mak.
