At St Ives Shopping Village, we’re constantly looking at ways to reduce our environmental footprint and revolutionalise the way we operate.
We are taking the steps required to implement sustainable initiatives, whilst educating and engaging our customers and stakeholders
Together, we’re moving towards a greener Village.

Recycling and Waste Diversion
On 1 November 2020, we took a step towards becoming a greener Village with a new waste and recycling initiative aimed at reducing landfill. It’s been a phenomenal success, with over 50 tonnes of waste been diverted to date.
Cup to Crop
Our cafés are taking full advantage of our Cup to Crop coffee grounds recycling program with coffee grounds being used to create sustainable fertiliser.
Waste and Recycling Valets have been appointed to collect recyclables from retailers and to train retailers in best recycling practices. A Waste Committee also meets once a quarter to discuss new initiatives and best practice.
Did you know energy efficient lights are installed throughout St Ives Shopping Village and in the car parks? Greener power makes our power and air-conditioning supply more environmentally friendly. Overall electricity consumption has been effectively reduced by the installation of sensors on car park lighting and times on air conditioning units to maximise efficiencies.
St Ives Shopping Village has installed two universal electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, powered by Chargefox. For more details on where our EV charging facilities are located, please visit our Electric Vehicle Charging page.
Borrow a bag
Customers can borrow a bag from our Boomerang Bag Station to do their shopping. Simply pick one up, do your shop and return it the next time you visit. Find the bag station opposite Sportscraft, near Harris Farm.
