University Surrey Simon Booth Vegware Green Tree

University of Surrey chooses Green Tree collection to communicate eco ethos

Vegware_collection_GT_group_W8.5CARRW-GT_VDW-G12_VGGSH2-GT_R500-GT_salad_snack_combo_800xWe’ve just launched the Green Tree collection in honour of our Queen’s Award for Innovation win. This stylish grab & go collection features a word-cloud motif celebrating sustainability and Vegware’s eco credentials – just like our award!

Like all of Vegware’s products, the compostable collection replaces plastics with plant materials with a lower carbon footprint. It’s already in use at the University of Surrey, who chose it for its clear sustainability-focused messages.

Director of Hospitality Simon Booth explains:

“Historically, cost was the most important factor for caterers, but the University of Surrey looks at the whole picture. Landfill costs are only going up, and a solution that removes this factor completely really helps us from a business perspective. 

The University of Surrey is very environmentally conscious. When we realised that over 80% of the landfill waste produced was coming from retail areas, our caterers and estates got together to address the issue. The most positive step forward was to switch to a compostable range of foodservice products. Vegware was the perfect partner as they had the vision to help create the Green Tree collection, which meets all our needs. This year, we’re using the collection for our conferences and location business.”
