REUSABLE CUPS AND TRAYS


 

THE IDEA

Students wanted more reusable cups and recyclable trays being used across the university.

 

ACTION

  • The Activities Officer will discuss the possibility of the Students' Union promoting reusable cups/trays where we have catering facilities.

 

UPDATE

SEPTEMBER 6TH

  • The Activites Officers is in discussions with the SU Commerical Services Manager to charge a levy, to promote the use of reusable cups and trays.

 

NOVEMBER 5TH

  • There is now a 25p levy on all cups and trays in SU catering facilities, to encourage the use of reusable cups and trays. The University is also running the same scheme across its catering facilities. 

 

NOVEMBER 29TH

  • The Activites Officer will be having a meeting with NUS at the end of the month to discuss the possibilities of getting reusable cups and trays for Cardiff SU. Students are encouraged to bring in their own reusable mugs or Tupperware to avoid the 25p levy charge. ​​​​​​​
