OUR ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

big impact, small carbon footprint

Our work is the only thing that makes an impact here at SOZO. Everything else we do – going to meetings, making a cuppa, switching on our Macs – helps to keep the planet healthy and happy.

And we don’t just mean that we recycle. We go above and beyond the norm to be sustainable.

members of Plastic Free Cheltenham

Freeing communities from single use plastics is one of the main aims of Surfers Against Sewage. To do this, they’re creating a nationwide Plastic Free Community network – and our hometown of Cheltenham is a key player in this initiative. As are we: in fact, we’re part of the steering group that’s helping to drive the change locally – and we couldn’t be prouder to be a part of it.
