Stop Using Disposable Coffee Cups
Always carry a reusable cup with you. (In Cafe Nero, they give you an extra stamp towards your next coffee for using your own!)
You could even use a jam car! (However make sure that it's suitable for boiling water or wear gloves to prevent burning yourself!)
You can purchase some pretty awesome reusable coffee cups. See our eco friendly product page for more details.
Only 1 in 400 coffee cups get recycled. The rest end up in landfills, in the streets, rivers or the ocean. One use coffee cups should be banned worldwide immediately.
Think before you print!
- Do you really need to print that document, could it simply be accessed through your emails or phone instead?
No Recycling bin in your office?
Encourage your company to do better for the environment and be proactive about recycling.
Encourage Zero Plastic In The Office
Noticing a lot of plastic waste coming from your office?
Try and have plastic free days, to encourage colleagues to bring in their own food.
Walk To Work
If you can, walk to work and get yourself some pre or post work exercise. If it's too far to walk, get yourself on public transport rather than driving.
Use A Re-useable Bottle
By carrying a re-useable water bottle with you everywhere you go, you will reduce the amount of bottles you will need to buy and you will also be saving yourself money, as well as the environment.
Plastic bottles make up a gigantic proportion of plastic pollution- go plastic bottle free!
When purchasing a reusable bottle, try and get yourself a glass bottle one.
You can choose from a range of bottles on our eco-friendly products page.
