Bressingham vets practice brings in new changes to mark Earth Day
A vets practice has been working to make itself greener by implementing new initiatives aimed at reducing its impact on the planet, while also rolling out a welcome mat to some of the world’s smallest creatures.
Uplands Way Vets in Bressingham marked Earth Day on Thursday by pledging to make all of its practices more ecologically friendly.
It has made a commitment to introduce recycling schemes and take steps to reduce its use of plastics and energy.
In addition, staff members have given the outdoor area of its site an overhaul, introducing a series of measures aimed at helping wildlife to thrive.
Practice manager Clare Barker said: “On Earth Day, the team here were assembling a number of feeding points and shelters for wildlife.
“They built bird boxes, hedgehog homes, bird feeders and a compost heap, along with creating a vegetable patch for our rabbit patients and planting wild flowers and bee-friendly plants,” added the 39-year-old.
Held every year since its inception in 1970, Earth Day demonstrates support for environmental protection.
