Last year at UWS we went through over 290,000 disposable cups, over 201,000 lids and 80,000 coffee clutches.
To dispose of these items it is estimated that a shocking 90 tonnes of CO2 were emitted into the atmosphere.
To ensure we take positive action to reduce our carbon footprint, from Monday 4th February a 25p charge will be payable if a disposable cup is required at any of our catering outlets.
To avoid the charge, make the change and ensure you have a reusable cup ready for use before Monday 4th February! You can buy a reusable cup at any of our coffee outlets.
