Doing our bit

As a conservation charity, the income the National Trust generates from food and drink is fundamental in helping us to look after special places for ever, for everyone. Therefore it is extremely important to us that our products and packaging reflect our conservation cause.

All of our takeaway sandwich boxes, cups and lids are fully compostable, low carbon, renewable and completely free from plastic. As a result of using Vegware, every year the National Trust save over three tonnes of carbon; the equivalent of 115 flights from London to Paris.

At Blickling, we responsibly dispose of all our on-site waste, with nearly over 80% of it on average being diverted from landfill.

We sell reusable, hardwearing and dishwasher safe bamboo cups in our restaurant and shop. Our beautiful bamboo travel cups are just £10 and whenever you bring your reusable cup into our cafés you will receive 25p discount - protecting your wallet as well as the environment.
