What a Year!

THE ECO FRIENDLY APPROACH

Recycle: to convert (waste) into reusable material

A hot topic in the UK at the moment is the idea of green lifestyles, eco companies and using renewable technologies. At the Brighton Centre, we think this goes beyond the energy we consume, to the buildings within which we work and live.
