Cups for keeps
The University’s alternative to coffee cups is saving energy, resources and costs
In 2018 nearly 3,500 reusable Keep Cups were sold from Source Cafes at the University diverting 58,000 disposable cups from landfill.
Cardboard and plastic lined disposable cups can be difficult to recycle and while biodegradable and compostable may be better alternatives they are still single use packaging. Reusable cups such as ‘Keep Cups’ are the best environmental option, and you can purchase yours at the University, at cost, for just £6.50, approximately half the normal retail price. Your initial purchase includes a hot drink of your choice and you will receive 20p off each additional purchase of a hot drink when using your Keep cup or any other reusable cup.
