We are delighted to announce that over 50,000 fewer disposable cups have been used on campus since the introduction of the KeepCup scheme. Good work everyone. Have you got yours yet?
New range of KeepCups available on campus
What Colour Will You Choose?
Due to huge popularity and to support the University's Plastic Free campaign, a new stock of reusable University branded KeepCups is now available on campus. Choose from a range of new colours or clear glass and pick up your KeepCup from any Eat & Shop outlet on campus, from just £8.99.
As part of a joint initiative, the University Eat & Shop and Student's Guild outlets have reduced hot drink prices by 25p, so when you use your KeepCup (or other reusable mug) in one of the University or Guild outlets on campus, you will pay the lower price. If you use a disposable cup, it will cost an extra 25p on top. Think of it like the carrier bag fee.
There’s enough plastic in 20 disposable cups and lids to make one KeepCup, and after 15 uses you’ll save energy and resources, as well as waste. Will you #GiveUpYourPaperCup ?
