The most exciting development in January was the launch of the snazzy new Whitstable Cups. The less-than-beautiful cups that we used in the pilot scheme have been replaced with beautiful, bright beakers that shine in the January gloom. The launch has also encouraged new cafes to join the scheme.
A REMINDER: What is the Whitstable Cup you cry?
Well, if you've forgotten your reusable cup, hadn't planned to have a coffee or don't own your own cup yet (umm, we sell those too), you can HIRE A Whitstable CUP FOR £1 FROM ANY PARTICIPATING COFFEE SHOP, USE IT AS MANY TIMES AS YOU LIKE AND RETURN IT TO ANY PARTICIPATING SHOP when you've finished with it. Simple, huh. Yes. they are made from plastic, but they're the opposite of single-use plastic. While we're taking cups, a huge shout-out to Plastic Free Whitstable for organising this excellent scheme. Or, as I just typed, meme ... which it should be!
