Our pledge to be more environmentally responsible

Our year in a pandemic has shown us just how fragile our planet is so we wanted to take the step to do our bit to be more environmentally responsible. As an organisation, we have always been conscious of our impact and in recent years, we have moved all our information and communication online, reducing our paper waste but this year, we decided to assess our plastic waste.

Did you know..?

...that by switching to digital B&BC will be reducing their plastic waste by 0.3 tonnes a year - that’s the same weight as an adult grizzly bear! This reduces their carbon footprint by 20.64 tonnes of CO₂e.

The card will still be free and available to all those with a bladder and bowel condition but will become a downloadable card that sits in your Apple or Android wallet on your smartphone. Plastic cards tend to get touched by others, when shown and can easily be lost or misplaced. This will also make the new card more practical and hygenic.
