Following on from the initial workshop with the Climate Ambassador Programme in January we would now like to provide an update on the Aqua Domes environmental progress to date.
Mags O'Sullivan Centre Manager and Environmental Ambassador for the Aqua Dome contacted the following suppliers with a view to implementing positive environmental changes:
- Hygicare to provide environmental friendly products for the washroom area i.e. toilet paper, paper hand towels, eco friendly soap and compostable bin bags.
- Advanced Cleaning to supply eco friendly cleaning products for the floor and general usage.
- First Aid Supplies to supply eco friendly bio degradable pool overshoes.
- Environmental Process Automation (EPA) to update the outstations in the Business Management System which help reduce energy consumption by optimizing the efficiency of energy performance.
- KTC Vending to replace all the plastic bottles in the vending machines with cans.
- Cottering Catering to eliminate all single use plastics in the cafe and implement an environmental refuse system.
- Craftmaster Hygiene to source eco friendly air freshner dispensers in the toilets.
- Dillons Waste to offer advice on recycling and waste management.
- Aqua Dome Technical Manager to set up an external refill station for drinkable water.
Mags also attended the Kerry Climate Action Network (KerryCAN) on Monday the 29th of January in the ITT North Campus and the purpose of the network meeting was to:
- Create a shared vision
- Collaborate and share resources
- Explore opportunities for education, awareness and networking
- Strengthen the collective capacity of the network to take action on climate change in Kerry
In the coming months the Aqua Dome will be making short videos of their environmental improvements and they hope they will be able to lead by example and encourage & inspire people both at home and in their business to do the same.
We can all do our bit for the environment and help reduce our carbon footprint...you'll feel great about doing something good for the planet!
Love the Planet, Be Kind to the Planet, Love the Environment!
