At our playcentre in Dunstable we care about our carbon footprint and have been taking action to improve our sustainability

How we are making a difference

  • Bring your own re-usable cup and you can get 25p discount on any hot drink.
  • We have a recycling bin for all cardboard waste
  • Our coffee and Pepsi cups are collected by Simply Waste for specialist recycling
  • We sell Pokito cups and Snakes and Ladders plastic water bottles to promote re-use
  • We recycle our cooking oil
  • We have increased the amount we recycle, greatly reducing the amount we send to general waste
  • Our paper plates are compostable
  • We have replaced all our plastic straws with paper straws and our star slush straws are compostable
  • We have installed motion sensor lights in areas to reduce electricity used when not in use
  • All staff members use re-usable cups
  • We are offering a vegan mountain burger which has a smaller carbon foot print
  • When possible staff take home coffee grounds to use on their home grown veg or to put into their garden compost bins
  • We use wooden tea stirrers as opposed to plastic tea stirrers
  • Our bins are labelled to encourage customers to recycle their items
  • We often turn off ‘auto receipt’ to reduce the amount of paper used


Did you know?

  • Plastic can take 100 of years to fully decompose
  • The average person living in the UK uses around 200kg of paper every year
  • For every tonne of recycled newspaper, 17 trees are saved
  • Each UK household produces over 1 tonne of waste per year. This is the weight of a small car
  • In less than 2 hours the UK produces enough waste to fill the Albert Hall
