Help us reduce our use of plastic

Poster about reducing plastic waste

Some donors have asked us if the large plastic beakers that we put out with water at sessions are recyclable.

The good news is – they are!

The beakers are necessary because a large drink of water before you donate helps to keep you feeling well during and after giving blood.

We have signed up to the ‘Zero landfill by 2025’ scheme, and we have started to evaluate the Vegware range (packaging made from plants).

And you can actively help us by bringing your own reusable/recyclable drink container along to your appointment for that all-important pre-donation drink.
