Working towards a more sustainable future
For our students and staff at Bridgewater, social responsibility is a key part of the school’s agenda where every individual counts, and the introduction of sustainable, recyclable paper bags is just one of the ways in which we help care for the world around us.
The addition of sustainable bags comes off the back of several recent environmental initiatives introduced by the school to positively contribute to climate change solutions, including:
- A new online photography proofing system which eliminates the use of chemicals and materials
- Becoming a Community Recycling Champion for innovative recycling company TerraCycle, who make the non-recyclable, recyclable – giving writing instruments a second life
- Implementation of an energy efficient LED lighting replacement policy
- An ongoing focus on waste reduction and management.
Said Site Manager, Jon Lawrence “My team and I take our environmental responsibility seriously and we are acutely aware that every step we collectively take in our sustainability efforts, no matter how small, can make a big difference for the world of tomorrow.”
As a forward-thinking independent school, we also take an outwardly focused approach to education, with students actively encouraged to look outside their own community and into the wider world that they will experience as adults. Last year alone, pupils raised over £10,000 for charitable causes and donations of goods & gifts helped support a range of organisations both at home and abroad.
