We take our environmental responsibilities pretty seriously here, and you’ll no doubt have heard the furore recently over plastic drinking straws and the terrible damage they’re doing to the environment. Who could forget the heartbreaking images on the BBC’s Blue Planet 2 showing our oceans literally clogged up with plastic waste?

So we’re really proud to announce that we’re removing plastic drinking straws from all of our cafes with immediate effect, and replacing them with recyclable paper straws. You might not even notice the difference as you’re absent mindedly slurping down the end of your fizzy pop, but we firmly believe that moving towards a more sustainable future is essential for future generations.

We’ll be announcing more initiatives over the next few weeks that will let us reduce our environmental footprint further without affecting the quality or service that we pride ourselves on providing. Watch this space!
