The Yard soft play is Stamford’s third plastic free champion

Entertaining children and being plastic free are not two things that often go together, but the Yard soft play has shown how it really is possible.

The team at the Yard has replaced plastic straws with paper ones, plastic spoons with wood alternatives and little plastic post with ones made of cornstarch. Party bags without balloons and bubble wands are also in the pipeline.

Jo Henchy, who co-owns the Yard with Aimee Swift, told the Stamford Mercury:

“We’re really pleased to be involved in this campaign. We’ve been trying our best as a business to reduce our plastic waste over the last few years anyway but the Plastic Free Stamford campaign has encouraged us to do a bit more.”

“Being a business where we get a lot of families and children, it’s also about being a good role model.”
