We have always used environmentally friendly washing detergents to clean the venue, facilities and crockery. However, most detergents often come in unsustainable plastic bottles, which poses a real challenge to our sustainable credentials.
To mitigate the impact of seemingly unavoidable plastic, we changed our supplier to Delphis, whose products are derived from sustainable, natural resources and are completely biodegradable. They provide larger 100% recycled plastic bottles, which means less plastic is used than the smaller counterparts their competitors use. We also order large bottles of sustainable hand-wash and washing-up liquid, which are decanted into refillable bottles to reduce plastic waste.
Additionally, by using a British company we have reduced the Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions associated with the transport of goods and are helping to promote a circular economy that recycles and reuses again and again.
