BELLA BEE’S GREEN GARDEN
1st April to 30th April 2017
April 1st will see the launch of the Centre’s ‘Eco Pledge’ Wall, that will be installed on the front of the former Perfect Home Unit by the Mall Cafe. The pledge wall will be in the centre throughout the month of April, as part of Bella Bees Green Garden Theme.
The Eco Wall is aimed at encouraging shoppers to pledge to help the environment, no matter how small their contribution is. The three pledges the Centre has chosen are; ‘always bring a reusable shopping bag with them’ or ‘to walk or take public transport as much as possible’ or ‘to turn the lights off when they leave a room’. Each pledge will be a hand print shape leaf on a tree – to keep in with the Eco theme & representing the carbon footprint. To make a pledge, shoppers are invited to write their names on a hand print to make that pledge. Local schools will also be participating, as this will be a great way to help educate the younger generation about environmental issues.
A second panel will also be installed on a window, to show the statistics and achievements already met by Belle Vale Shopping Centres’ Waste Management Strategy. In November 2016 the Centre was presented with a Green Apple Award for Environmental Best Practice.
