Planet | Our Effects
All of our packaging is biodegradable. We expect to hand out over 20,000 units of food packaging at our Manchester site alone in 2021, about 1.5 tonnes.
Our coffee cups are also biodegradable and we are anticipating the sale of over 6000 cups in 2021 at the same site.
What is Biodegradable?
(of a substance or object) capable of being decomposed by bacteria or other living organisms and thereby avoiding pollution.
We are rolling out our 10 pence initiative over the Spring and Summer of 2021. Offering 10p off every hot drink if a customer brings their cup back for re-use or brings their own cup to be filled. We're saving on the cost of the cup, so we pass that saving on to the customer and in turn, one less cup goes into general waste.
"We are mainly encouraging people to begin 'bringing a cup to work' and therefore bringing their own cup or mug into on site cafe's in order to cut out the waste altogether."
