11:50am on 1 Feb 21 should sell uwe coffee reusables so that option is there in case someone forget as well as veg-ware compostable
Alexander Montgomery
5:34pm on 13 Jan 21 As per the waste hierarchy, we must prioritise reducing the use of single-use items by implementing the infrastructure to do this. Instead, we should be encouraging the use of reusable items
Josephine Adams
11:56am on 13 Jan 21 'Compostable' cups still have huge demands in manufacturing and waste separation/disposable. This awareness needs to be generated with customers and a shift to re-usable or 'bring your own' would be much more environmentally friendly.
