Church reduces carbon footprint with Bamboo Coffee Cups

Deciding to improve their sustainability with implementing reusable bamboo coffee cups for their coffee mornings and other voluntary and fundraising events The Diocese of Peterborough are driving their fight on plastic waste by using Happycups, a eco-friendly reusable, branded coffee cup.

Selling 70% of the Coffee Cups in the first weekend

Liz Holdsworth was heavily involved before her recent retirement and with sales much higher than expected, selling over 70% on their first weekend meaning she had to return with a replenishment order just a couple of weeks after their initial delivery due to the popularity of their printed coffee cups. Following the initial launch she said

Coffee Cups Flying Off The Shelves

Delighted with our bamboo cups, which have been flying off the shelves! As a church organisation, it has been a great way for us to demonstrate our environmental concerns and our support for the honouring of creation and its sustainability!”

The re-usable bamboo coffee cups are provided by, Peter Reynolds, MD said “I started the business some years ago after becoming fed up with the waste produced by single use coffee cups. The first few years were slow, people didn’t really get the concept or were put off by the price being more than single use alternatives. Now, with the increased focus in the media around the world, on reducing disposable single-use cups and having a greater conscience regarding our carbon footprint and protecting the oceans things are looking much more positive. We are confident that 2019 will be our busiest year yet and we will save tons of waste from becoming landfill.
