On the London School of Economics CBR Mace project, we have been trying to reduce our use of plastics on site and in the welfare facilities. This is part of a wider Mace initiative and clear environmental benefits.
We have introduced beeswax sandwich wraps which are made predominantly from old shirts and are 100% washable and reusable. These have been used in the site canteen to reduce the need for cling film and plastic or paper plates. The idea for this came from one of our management team whose wife has a small business making the wraps. When we heard about this, we sampled a few to see how well they would be received and how well they work as a canteen alternative.
This initiative has been very well received by operatives on site and to encourage further engagement Mace have been subsidising the costs of these wraps for all operatives.
Further to this, we have been collecting old shirts from operatives working on site as these can be used to make more wraps and these can be sold on site at a reduced cost.
