We are doing our bit for the environment and removing all disposable plastics from the workplace

Why we decided to remove single-use water bottles from our office.

As reported by the BBC "In the UK 38.5m plastic bottles are used every day and only just over half make it to recycling, while more than 16m are put into landfill, burnt or leak into the environment and oceans each day". Between 5m and 13m tonnes of plastic leaks into the world's oceans each year to be ingested by seabirds, fish, and other organisms, and by 2050 the ocean will contain more plastic by weight than fish, according to research by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. 

Focus 21 made the decision to help support our seas by giving all our staff re-useable water bottles as a step towards reducing our plastic use.
