Reusable Coffee Cups

The Students’ Union is going chewing gum free thanks to an innovative recycling idea. Instead of ending up stuck on the ground, partner company Gumdrop transform the sticky mess into – coffee mugs!

Yes - reusable, unbreakable coffee mugs that you can buy on campus.

16 bright pink, bubble-shaped bins – themselves made of recycled gum – have been hung around campuses. The gum is collected and we get these great mugs in return. And remember, reusable mugs avoid the 25p 'disposable cup charge'!

Mugs cost just £4 and are available from Atmosphere Kitchen and Bar in the Café.
