Louise Lloyd-Evans owns Young Friends, an Eco Friendly nursery in Hove. She is passionate about all nurseries not only becoming sustainable, but teaching the next generation to look after our planet.
In this interview we discuss how to make your setting more sustainable, liaising with families to get the right message to them, getting rid of plastic (but not all of it!), cost implications and how this has reduced the potty training age dramatically!
Louise is the founder of SNAP – Sustainable Nurseries Against Plastic and says ‘we have a duty to educate young people, staff and owners from day one so it becomes a natural responsibility’.
