We are delighted to be working with 1st Waste Management to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions through carbon offsetting!

At Happy Days, we pride ourselves in making conscious efforts to promote sustainability within our nurseries and beyond, implementing activities such as recycling, the Eco-Schools Programme, and reducing waste.

This year we are working in partnership with 1st Waste to minimise our contributions to landfill and to calculate the carbon created from our generated waste and recycling, alongside our offsetting activities such as tree planting and wind turbine energy projects. Between March 2023 and March 2024, we will aim to reduce our emissions by 200.46 tonnes by balancing our greenhouse gas emissions associated with our waste services through changes to our internal practices and carbon offsetting.

Through this scheme, we are already seeing a remarkable difference; we were able to reduce landfill to 0.086 tonnes out of 10.230 tonnes in April alone! Jemma Fernley, our Facilities Assistant, shares her enthusiasm for this new initiative, “We are making some really good progress with our waste disposal and hope to improve our internal processes to further reduce our contribution to landfill sites.”

1st Waste Management kindly sent a certificate in celebration to confirm this offset. We are excited to be continuing this partnership and to continue our efforts in conserving the environment.
