Conservation & Zero Waste

Teaching Sustainability

Through promoting sustainable conservation practices, our children are encouraged to actively care and have respect for our environment at My Treehut, at Stepping Stones, at home and in their communities.

By teaching our young children of today how to live sustainably, we feel they will make a difference in our world as they grow up.

At My Treehut we are aiming to be a Zero Waste centre – we recycle, compost and provide scraps for our worm farm or the local farmer’s pigs. We ask for recyclable packaging, our local butcher puts our meat into our own reusable containers and the fruit and vegetables are delivered in cardboard boxes which the children use in construction projects and imaginative play.

We collect the rain water from our roof and use it to water our gardens and when planting new trees we try to source trees which attract native birds.

We try to run a paper free admin office – we are keen for you to email us and we are trying to have all the information you need on our website (please let us know if you feel we are missing anything).

We try to avoid the use any chemicals. Instead we use white vinegar, essential oils, and chemical free products to keep our centre and ourselves clean and healthy.

If you have any tips for us on how to be more environmentally sustainable please feel free to come and share with us.
