Last year we decided to stop using single-use plastic in our UK training centres, and got all our students, tutors and staff on board.
We encouraged everyone to bring in reusable water bottles, and highlighted our refill facilities, to help people avoid relying on single use plastic.
In November 2019 we ran with the campaign across social media, to share this story, and it was received really well.
Alongside this we also asked people to show us how green and environmentally friendly they were being, and if they told us, we sent them their own Kaplan bottle, packed in eco-friendly jiffy bags.
And it was noticed!
PQ Magazine awarded us their Editor’s Special Award for our single use plastic campaign. This is a wonderful award to win, as it really shows that innovative ideas and great engagement really pays off.
Here’s to being greener in the future, and to more eco-friendly ideas.
