Sustainability Event Hosted by St. Michael's
On Tuesday evening, we hosted a wonderful event for local nurseries to see first hand the work we have been doing to be an eco-friendly nursery and how to achieve 'Plastic Free Status'. Working alongside Sustainable Business Resource and the North Devon Biosphere, it was a successful event and wonderful to welcome so many practitioners into our setting.
Sustainable Lead, Katie Webber led a talk about how nurseries can embrace small changes and how they have a big impact on the planet.
Emily Willoughby represented the North Devon Biosphere and gave a really insightful talk about the local environment and how we can help. https://www.biosphere.org.uk/
Steve and Tom from the Sustainable Business Resource were there to help businesses in planning their sustainability journey. They can provide a one to one consultancy to identify how each individual business can reduce their carbon footprint, reduce or replace the use of unsustainable materials, incentivise staff, and help secure a more sustainable future. https://www.thesbr.org.uk/
