The UK’s first zero plastic spring water is to be stocked at Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure – one of the first companies in East Anglia to stock the innovative new product.
As the Park continues to move forward with its environmental impact status, guests will now have the opportunity to buy Life Water – the UK’s first BPA-free canned spring water from December 1 (in time for Christmas at the Park).
Much has been made of the changing attitudes towards plastic waste and its effect on our environment.
As a result, Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure will now be stocking the cans – made from 70% recycled aluminium and from 100% recyclable materials, with the water sourced locally from British Natural Springs.
These will replace single use plastic bottles at the Park – with all the cans sealed from light and air, for freshness.
The scheme is supported by scientists and is already in operation at the Natural History Museum.
Ben Jewiss, Assistant Park Manager, said: “We really want to lead by example by stocking the first zero-plastic water cans from Life Water – as we look to build a sustainable future at Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure.
“We recognise some of the dangers that plastics can cause and the urgent need to protect our wildlife by thinking of new ways to help prevent pollution.
“In addition, we are also keen for our guests to bring their own reusable bottles to refill at our free water stations around the Park.”
Over 9 million cans are recycled every hour, with worldwide aluminium recycling preventing around 170 million tonnes of greenhouse gases from entering the environment each year.
