last week we had the pleasure of touring the cross green recycling and energy recovery facility! ♻🌍🌿
it’s always nice – and also a little unusual in an industrial estate – to have such interesting architecture right on your doorstep, and so much green with europe’s largest living wall on the side of the building!
through recycling and reducing landfill they are able to create enough energy to heat 20,000 homes a year across leeds, as well as increasing biodiversity via the wall. processing 175,000 tonnes of waste is no mean feat, and we are feeling super inspired by what we learned during our tour.
we are also very excited to be a part of their bee project! the rerf houses 60,000 bees, and we are looking forward to being able to support them in this project to slow down the population decline.
with our newfound, deeper understanding of our recycling journey, we will continue to recycle and search for new ways to reduce our carbon footprint. for now, enjoy these snaps of us all pretending not to be scared of heights or the giant claw.
thanks cross green rerf! 💚
