With Earth Day looming and many of us becoming increasingly conscious about our impact on the environment, staff at Cornwallis Court, in Bury St Edmunds, have pledged to reduce their waste.
The team is taking part in a recycling scheme by Terracycle, to safely recycle empty medicine packaging at the care home.
In each area of the Home, staff will collect empty blister packets before dropping them off at their local designated drop-off centre, which is a Superdrug. This is then sent onto Terracycle, and helps the company to earn rewards for their preferred charity.
Activities Coordinator Emma Gibson, one of the staff members leading the green activity, said:
We’re really enthusiastic about taking part in Terracycle’s recycling programme and helping to reduce waste at Cornwallis Court. It’s really made us think what other green activities we can incorporate into our daily work, to have a more positive impact on the environment.
