Staff receive eco-friendly keep cups in an effort to tackle plastic waste

During the annual Switched on to Safety Week, all staff received a cup for their hot drinks made from bamboo, corn starch and resin.

The Health and Safety team saw this as an opportunity for staff to reduce waste one plastic cup at a time, while keeping safe with sturdy no-spill lids. The cups are especially useful for field staff who tend to rely on vending machines on the go.

Avonbank Digital Communications Assistant Elle England, a user of the cups said: “Refusing single-use items like cups, cutlery and food containers and opting for reusable alternatives is an easy and cost-effective way to help the planet by reducing waste.”

In 2018/19 we saw a dramatic decrease in the percentage and tonnage of waste sent to landfill across our entire network. For more information on our environmental performance, download our Environment and Innovation Report 2018/19 or view the summary pages.
