Royston Leisure Centre Ditches Blue and Goes Green!

As part of ongoing efforts to reduce single use plastics in North Herts, Royston Leisure Centre is ditching blue plastic overshoes at its swimming pool and asking customers to either go barefoot or wear indoor flip flops.

The initiative will save almost 780KG of plastic waste in North Hertfordshire each year. Alongside this, in a bid to reduce the use of single use plastic cups and bottles, a drinking water fountain has also been installed at the Leisure Centre.

Royton Leisure Centre, managed by Stevenage Leisure Limited, is the first of the leisure centres in North Herts to ditch the blue shoes, with Hitchin Swimming Centre and North Herts Leisure Centre in Letchworth planning to follow suit early next year.
