KeepCup News - 2010

The trial continues

Posted on 26 Nov 2010 by KeepCup / 0 Comments

At 6.50 with a free coffee on Bridget with purchase, and in a natty little giftbox the Pret KeepCup is hard to resist. 3 trillion disposable cups discarded in the UK annually,  KeepCup is on a big adventure.  Here it is just taking a moment to reflect on London Bridge prior to the kick off of the trial.  And of course takes public transport!

Things are going very well and we have been really thrilled by the positive response of the Pret customers and the enthusiasm and comittment of the Pret team.


Pret a Manger trial

The KeepCup trial commences in their London Bridge store today.

It is an exciting opportunity to change the way Londoners think about disposable cup waste and how a simple habit change can make an enormous difference.

Of course the Pret KeepCup also makes a terrific Secret Santa gift!

What we have been up to

We were finalists in the ECO-buy sustainabilty awards as Green Supplier of the Year.

We took part in the Manly Ocean Care day late last year. It was a great success – see some photos of ferry drivers and the number of disposable cups collected that day. Its a great example of the number of disposables used by ferry commuters each day.

Our UK team spent a gruelling three days at Coffee Culture in London last week and met anyone who’s anyone in the world of coffee – plus someone sporting some very handsome candystripes.
