As part of the commitment to move to a Carbon Neutral City by 2030, Southampton City Council has launched the Green City Charter with a vision to create a cleaner, green, healthier and more sustainable City.
Here at Tudor House & Garden we have pledged our support and we’re changing the way we do things to become a more sustainable and greener museum. We are also proud to be part of the Arts Council England Accelerator programme to share and learn practice and insights with the wider cultural sector.
Here are some of our current changes:
The café has a living green roof for local wildlife to enjoy
We have moved to biodegradable takeaway cups, paper straws
We source our items locally where possible
We are supplied by 100% green electricity
We use recycled materials where possible for learning activities
We have stopped the automatic printing of receipts for front of house this is also applicable
to retail and catering
We now offer digital download of maps instead of handing them out automatically
We are also looking into being single use plastic free.
