Blenheim Palace makes plans to eliminate plastic waste; Climate Action Programme

UK – Blenheim Palace

One of the UK’s largest and grandest stately homes has announced plans to eliminate plastic on its grounds.

Blenheim Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, stated late last week that it will stop selling plastic water bottles and replace plastic straws with paper ones.

The Palace’s new sustainability advisor, Jacqueline Gibson, commented: “In the past year we have provided environmental training to 82 per cent of staff, commissioned external consultants to host a Waste Workshop for senior teams, and standardised the way waste is segregated and stored for recycling across all offices and work areas.”

“We are working in partnership with Friends of the Earth Oxford and Sustainable Woodstock, to share best practice with other local shops and organisations to reduce single use plastic,” she added.

Additional measures the Oxfordshire estate is taking include using biodegradable bin liners and making disposable cutlery compostable.

The estate, first built in 1705, is the traditional homes of the Dukes of Marlborough, and has worked hard to implement sustainability initiatives.
