Green Office News: Great news for coffee fans…

Did you know that the humble coffee cup may not be so humble after all? That is because most of those available on the high street have a small percentage of plastic content that makes recycling them very difficult. As a result, an estimated 2.5bn paper cups go to landfill every year, and that’s just in the U.K!

But help is at hand, as a British company has developed the world’s first technology to recycle disposable coffee cups into high quality paper products.

More info on this story can be found here, but in the meantime how much have you considered the origin of the content within your cup? We have, which is why we provide both Rainforest Alliance and Fairtrade teas and coffees for our customers to enjoy. In addition, we are one of only a few outlets to supply Cool Earth coffee, which commits to protect more rainforest for every cup consumed.

Our green office products and environmental office supplies inspire sustainable procurement in your London office, and our free London office recycling service helps our customers save money and reduce their carbon footprint too.

Green Office Tip: Corporate mis-activity is a hot topic at the moment. See if your suppliers have been implicated so you know you are making an ethical supply chain choice
