Our plastics pledge

We practice what we preach

UKSA sustainable bottles, coffee cups and straws

Our response

At UKSA we are passionate about the sea; it sits at the heart of everything we do.  We have substantially reduced single-use plastics and are proud to have put the following in place:

  • Separate food waste, recycling and land fill
  • Compostable sandwich containers, wraps, cutlery
  • All students and staff use a re-usable mug and water bottle
  • Recycle crisp packets through Terracycle
  • Do not use single use condiments, sauces, glasses or cups
  • Paper straws and stirrers in the bar
  • Sea-bin which removes an estimated 1.5kg of floating debris per day (first one installed on the Isle of Wight). Our NCS students raised the funds to pay for this.
  • Environmentally friendly boat cleaning products
  • Waterless urinals
  • PV Panels on swimming pool roof
