Our Pioneers

Please meet our Green Street Bradford Pioneers.

This exciting live action research pilot is working with 20+ independent retail and hospitality businesses in the heart of Bradford to help them become greener and build a sustainable shopping community.

These businesses are all committed to making their business more sustainable and offering a more planet-friendly experience for their customers. When they have signed up to the manifesto below they will display the Green Street-branded window sticker, ‘Working towards a Greener Bradford’, so that customers can more easily choose to support planet-friendly businesses.


The Green Street Manifesto
We are working towards making our business and our high street more sustainable and planet friendly, together with other Bradford businesses.

  1. We are reducing our energy consumption by using more energy efficient equipment, changing our behaviours and monitoring our energy usage.
  2. We are taking steps to prevent, recycle and reuse as much of our waste as possible.
  3. We are reducing the amount of packaging we use and pass on to our customers.
  4. We are eliminating as much single use plastic as possible from our business.
  5. We are actively exploring stocking locally sourced and more sustainable products and services for our customers.
  6. We are sharing our learnings and collaborating closely with our suppliers for a greener supply chain.
  7. We will inspire and make it easier for our customers and our team to make sustainable changes and become more planet friendly.
