Socio-economic issues

A huge thank you to our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion group who have been focusing on socio-economic issues, mainly the inequalities in education and how this and the pandemic will impact on future careers.

A great way to recycle these tubs and save them from landfiil

A great way to recycle these tubs and save them from landfiil

Tens of millions of tubs such as these are sold in the UK every year…. Christmas being an especially busy time!

Holy Cross will be supporting a great recycling initiative at any Green King pub, hotel or restaurant across the UK, from 1-31st January. 

After 31 January, all the tubs are collected and taken to a plastic reprocessing centre where they’re shredded, before being sold onto plastic manufacturers to use in place of virgin plastics. All money raised from the sale of Tub 2 Pub plastics will be given directly to Macmillan Cancer Support.

We would all rather do without these tubs I’m sure but it’s inevitable they are gifted or sometimes needed for festivities and it’s reassuring to know that they can go in to be repurposed in other ways, without finding their way into landfill or our oceans.

A special mention to Lee and Tom for organising, scheduling, filming and editing the event.
