Whipps Whips Up A Green Restaurant Recipe

Whipps Cross Hospital.

Whipps Cross Hospital opened a refurbished restaurant for staff and visitors in the week commencing Aug 6, boasting improvements to be more environmentally friendly along with increased space and more comfortable seating.

Disposable packaging, including cutlery, can now be recycled and the hospital is encouraging people to benefit from a 20p saving by bringing their own reusable mugs and containers.

Alastair Wilson in the Trust’s facilities management team said: “Not only does the new restaurant look great, it also helps us in our efforts to reduce waste and be more sustainable. We’ve had fantastic comments from patients and staff who are chuffed with the improvements. We’re really pleased that our food and drink suppliers, Elior, have helped us make the new restaurant a reality.”
