At South Quay Plaza we are committed to minimise our use of disposable plastics, following the CCS ‘Spotlight on… plastics and packaging’ campaign.
As part of this we have developed a plastics and packaging minimising strategy. Our latest initiative challenged us to review the different types of disposable plastic protection we use on site and find an alternative.
A major success of this has been the introduction and implementation of re-usable fabric door handle covers to replace traditional clear plastic wrap. As this is a development of 634 units in SQP1 and 1,284 in total in all 3 phases, the reduction in plastic use would be substantial.
We believe this is a simple and affordable solution to a industry-wide problem, which could be easily replicated across the construction sector to reduce the negative impact waste plastics are having on the environment.
