Reusable Cup Race: We're at 14% usage of reusable cups, and 30p off hot drinks

TLDRoffon

There's still time to increase our use of reusable cups and the discount in participating cafes. Get involved and make a small change that really makes a difference.

The Reusable Cup Race is taking place again during November.

It aims to encourage the use of keep cups and china mugs across the university canteens and coffee shops*. The results were fantastic, with your small change making a big difference, earning those using reusables 40p off and preventing over 6000 disposable cups from being wasted.

To kick things off, our catering partner Baxterstorey has doubled their reusable discount to 20p, and by hitting 14% we've increased the discount to 30p off any hot drink.  As the percentage of people with reusable cups grows, the discount will get bigger, how high can we go?

  • Get 40p off any hot drink as soon as we hit 18%
  • Get 50p off any hot drink as soon as we hit 25%

Remember to follow Sustainability on Facebook and Twitter for a chance to win a colourful Keep Cup.
