National Space Centre

We're proud to have the National Space Centre Cafe as a customer, where you can explore the galaxies, handle a meteorite, or spot Tim Peake’s spacesuit. 

The catering team use different branded finishes of Planglow packaging - our award-winning Gastro rangestreet food collection and clear Blanco bags. The variety of packaging allows the cafe to offer food and drink in the most appropriate packaging, reducing waste.

We chatted to Christy Hill, Assistant Coffee Shop Manager to find out more about how Planglow’s compostable packaging fits into their brand identity and adds perceived value to their delicious products. 

Christy told us:

“Sustainability is important to the Centre as we look to play our part in both acting as a role model and also inspiring visitors to become more environmentally friendly. We all need to play our part in combating the climate crisis.  

“We are always looking at ways we can become more environmentally friendly. We have introduced recyclable paper straws in the café while the Centre has installed over 700 solar panels on the main roof... At the Café, we explain face-to-face with our customers that we use Planglow products. We have signage above our bins explaining that we recycle and we also use social media to promote how we are working to become more environmentally friendly.

“Planglow’s eco products have helped to increase the perceived value of the offering,” Christy told us, adding: “Customer service, delivery times, product quality and understanding of our business and customers are all excellent.”
