A Norwich music venue is playing its part to help the environment by introducing reusable water bottles.
Artists and customers will only be able to pick-up biodegradable bottles from now on at the Norwich Arts Centre.
The venue normally gets through 125 bottles of water every week, it says by introducing the new biodegradable bottles it will cut its plastic usage by 75pc.
Bradley Glasspoole, general manager, said: 'We as a team have made some significant environmental changes throughout the building over the last 10 years and we feel extremely passionate about small changes our business can make to lower our CO2 impact on the local community and beyond.
'We know this is a small drop in the ocean but small steps are better than none.'
