Environmental and Sustainability Projects at The Stonegallows Clinic
Doing our bit...
As a small company we want to do our bit to reduce our negative impact on the environment. We are making small steps into becoming as environmentally friendly and sustainable as we can. If you see something in clinic that you think could be done better then do say, we are always looking for new ideas and ways to move forward.
We made a decision to convert from the usual store bought toilet paper and switched to 'Who Gives a Crap' earlier this year. So these aren't just some fancy toilet rolls you see in the toilets at Ash Lodge now.
Who Gives a Crap is a UK based company that had a vision to help provide sanitary toilets across the world after learning that nearly 40% don't have access to a good toilet.
The products are 100% plastic free, recycled and carbon neutral. fantastic.
There are lots of vegan, zero waste and sustainable hand soaps out there. At the moment we are using a company called 'Faith in Nature' a small family run company started in 1974. they pledge to replant trees for each order made and have worked to 'close the loop' on all plastics they produce for products.
If you have any suggestions of companies to try, let us know! Unfortunately we do need soaps in a pump bottle for hygiene reasons. however we refill or recycle these where appropriate.
