We attended Northwich Job Fair today to promote job vacancies and volunteering opportunities within our charity. Heidi from Rudheath and Witton Together worked alongside us. We met plenty of people today and it was great to be able to explain what we do and how we do it to both Mike Amesbury MP and Sam Naylor, Northwich Mayor.
It’s Greenpeace UK’s Great BIG Green Week. As nation of coffee lovers. It’s estimated we drink 95 million cups of coffee every single day!
Our love of coffee comes with a heavy cost of waste; the disposable cups usually cannot be recycled due to a thin layer of plastic they contain. These cups can take up to 50 years to decompose with around 2.5 billion of them end up in landfill every year in the UK.
Help reduce this waste by buying re-usable coffee cups. You’ll be making a difference to our home… the planet! Choosing a re-usable mug will save you money, as many national coffee shops offer discounts for customers using them.
