We are now plastic free! Find out how we’ve been able to do it and our pledge to support the development of plastic-free oceans.

Why go plastic free?

Did you know that last year we used over 42,000 disposable cups alone! This was a real eye opener for us so we decided to do something about it.

Our commitment:

As a maritime training organisation, UKSA is committed to reducing use of disposable plastics. We love our oceans and environment and have a duty to take care of them.

By when:

  • From 4th June 2018 we will no longer use any disposable cups or glasses within the organisation.
  • Re-usable water bottles and drinks cups will be available to purchase on site, or you are more than welcome to bring your own.
  • All our sandwich containers, napkins and disposables are now fully biodegradable and compostable, as part of our commitment to eliminating single-use plastics.

The future is bright:

These are small steps but they are a start and we hope you will join us in our continued commitment to our oceans and environment.
