Keeping you updated about everything in the Early Years Sector.
Have you ever considered using washable incontinence products, that reduce waste and cost less over time? You could switch to reusable absorbent pants (they look and feel like standard pants!) or washable pads that are more absorbent than disposables. Absorbent trunks and briefs are also available for men.
You can save even more money with our exclusive discount code giving you at least 15% off reusable incontinence products.
What makes bamboo more sustainable?
Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth!
Short Harvest Cycle
Unlike trees that take decades to mature, bamboo can be harvested in 3 to 5 years.
Bamboo can be harvested without killing the plant. Once cut down bamboo grows back again and again.
Longevity & Durability
Bamboo products often have a longer lifespan, reducing the frequency of replacements and the overall environmental impact associated with manufacturing and disposal.
Catch our Founder sharing some important points on Eco-friendly Early Years Settings at the PACEY’s latest webinar which was held on the 19th of October 2023
Are you wish-cycling?
Sometimes people are so conscientious at recycling that they put things in the recycling bin that they wish could go in, but actually can’t! Cartons, clothes and electrical items can be recycled at your local recycling banks.
Plastic film can be recycled in containers outside most supermarkets. Polystyrene and the majority of disposable cups would need to go in your rubbish bin, although fully biodegradable coffee cups can be home composted.
Ever wondered what happens to your food waste once it's collected?
Recycling your food waste at the kerbside, rather than disposing of it in your rubbish bin, helps saves money for essential public services and is also better for the environment.
Once it’s collected by our crews, it’s sent to an anaerobic digestion plant near Dorchester. Biogas is created when the food is mixed with water, stored in a sealed tank and broken down by microbes and bacteria. This produces renewable energy and heat for local homes and businesses. What’s left is used as a fertiliser for local farms.
Please recycle your glass
The ‘clinkety clink’ of glass is a satisfying sound when we put out the recycling, and get-togethers can result in even more glass bottles! Please pop all bottles and jars in your green recycling box (NOT your wheelie bin).
To stop the box getting heavy, please put it out regularly and before it gets full. It is possible to order an extra box if you frequently recycle a large amount of glass.
Vegan diet is the best for the planet - New Study
Eating Vegan foods is the best way to reduce carbon footprint. According to new study, a vegan diet reduces climate-heating emissions by 75%! It also results in less water pollution and land use comparing to diets in which more than 100g of meat was eaten daily. Furthermore, plant-based diets cut the destruction of wildlife by 66% and water use by 54%!
