Throughout 2017, the media was flooded with notions of how to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle. In light of this, and our dedication to protect our world’s oceans, we have been working hard to not only to improve our own environmental footprint, but also to make it easier for our visitors too!
We are delighted to see other businesses in Hull joining this movement, providing alternatives to plastic straws, in an effort to make Hull plastic straw free! Together we can reduce our impact on the environment. Here are some of our highlights:
Working with local company EYB Oil we can now dispose of our cooking oils in the most ingenious way – not only is it eco-friendly, but the oil is converted into energy!
We have introduced a range of eco-friendly straws for sale in our gift shop. Available in three different materials – wheat, bamboo and stainless steel, they are natural and durable and be cleaned to minimise usage of plastic straws.
Made from recycled paper and plastics, you can buy a range of pens, pencils and notebooks in a range of fun colours and designs in our gift shop.
Hard wearing, durable and 100% natural, you can buy these biodegradable cups and bowls in a range of fun designs in our shop, the perfect addition to any kitchen.
Replace those plastic bags with hard wearing, reusable fabric tote bags. Available from our shop in a variety of designs, they showcase some of our most popular animals. Baseball caps are also available, created from 100% recycled materials, 5 plastic bottles go into every hat!
The packaging, cups and straws in our café are now 100% compostable thanks to our partnership with Vegware. It may look as it is made from plastic, but it is in fact completely plant based! Once used, it can be broken down along with food waste and re-used to provide nutrients to soil.
By joining forces with Aquariums around the world we were able to create a heightened global awareness of marine litter as part of the #OurOcean campaign. Visitors to the attraction can see one of our displays filled with rubbish collected from our local coastline.
Staff at The Deep have pledged their commitment to the OneLess Campaign in the fight against marine plastic. By selling refillable bottles in our shop, we want to get as many visitors on board too! Available in a variety of colours and styles, including thermal cups – there is a design to suit all tastes.
