The Refinery's £1 coffee
Want to do your bit for the environment but don’t have the time to go out of your way? Well, if you’re a coffee drinker The Refinery might be able to help you do your bit. Bring in your own reusable cup and have a cup of coffee to take away for just £1. Yes, you heard us, whether it’s a soy flat white, an americano or cappuccino it’s just £1 from 11th June.
Did you know that 2.5 billion coffee cups are thrown away each year (that’s enough to stretch around the planet over 5 ½ times!). Most people think they’re easily recycled and so this isn’t a problem – unfortunately due to the complicated way they’re produced (the layer of plastic that lines them to keep them waterproof) and the drink residues left behind – less than 1% get recycled!
The Refinery has no desire to decrease their coffee drinking (frankly it’s a very enjoyable part of the morning!) but they do have the desire to reduce their effect on the environment and have done so by removing all plastic straws. Help them help the environment with their £1 coffee, available from 11 June.
