USE*RINSE*REPEAT its that easy!

Following our successful pilot scheme which started on 1st March 2024 using Circular&Co sustainable coffee cups, cups are now being distributed to drinks outlets across St Ives. The scheme starts with 12oz branded cups which can be used across multiple outlets across town.

Creating reusable coffee cups that will be used – and reused!

Our Circular&Co. Cup is designed to last for over ten years and it’s important that people feel proud carrying our branded cup and happy to use it time and again.

As one of the UK’s most popular holiday destinations St Ives sells a vast amount of hot and cold drinks, the majority of which are served in recyclables but single use takeaway vessels. For residents and visitors who prefer their drink on the go, St Ives is introducing a new affordable way of becoming part of the reusable movement.

St Ives has an enthusiastic and committed business community to keeping St Ives vibrant and beautiful. Working together as a collective we hope to reduce the amount of single-use cups in the area and as the movement progresses we hope to introduce additional items such as takeaway boxes. At the height of summer a huge amount of disposable cups a week are being used, with many being discarded in public places. The single-use coffee cup litter became heightened by the covid crisis and subsequent increase in visitors. Understanding that takeaway vessels account for a large amount of the town’s consumer waste, St Ives BID and its businesses are looking to action a community-wide cup scheme to help tackle the issue.
