Puxton Park Tourist Attraction, located in Hewish, near Weston-super-Mare, makes drastic changes to help the current climate emergency. Climate change is a known issue and the UK government has a target to become ‘carbon neutral’ by 2030.
In partnership with Aspen Services, Puxton Park is proud to introduce their new eco-friendly compostable food packaging in The Meadows Restaurant and their newly refurbished Clover Café. These plant-based disposables are made from 100% reclaimed materials and are commercially compostable.
Businesses across the UK are now being encouraged to integrate plastic alternatives and recyclable packaging in an effort to slow down the effects of climate change.
Both Puxton Park and Aspen Services are committed to sustainability and improving their environmental management through the introduction of these new products.
Kay Thomas, Manager of Puxton Park, says “We are delighted to finally say that we are totally environmentally friendly here at Puxton Park. After researching various products, we are so pleased to bring in these plant-based disposables that not only provide the top performance that we require for our catering, but also contribute to our efforts to be as eco-friendly as possible.
Ian Sweeten, Managing Director of Aspen Services, says “We are so pleased to be working with Kay and the team at Puxton park to improve their sustainability. We feel it is so important that we all work together to save our environment and with Puxton Park being so connected with our younger generation, it’s great that they are taking these steps for their future. Lee Savage helped source the products that we feel will be a massive step in helping to save our planet.”
In addition to scrapping all non-recyclables, Puxton Park has also been recognised for their efforts to source local and fair-trade products and services, to reduce energy and offset the Park’s carbon footprint. With an average of 250,000 visitors per year, Puxton Park can make a firm contribution towards improving the climate emergency by making these changes to their business practices and substantially reducing their carbon footprint.
