You can’t have missed the drive for people to use “keep” cups and there are now more places than ever using fully recyclable cups so ShopLK has launched the Reuse and Save Initiative.
Various ShopLK outlets will be offering incentives to encourage customers to bring their own reusable travel cups, reducing waste and reducing costs for both the customers and the businesses involved.
The campaign was inspired by an award winning recycling initiative called ‘Bottle It – Reuse and Refill’, which was set up by transition year students at Errigal College who were there to help launch the campaign.
Leonard Watson, President of Letterkenny Chamber supporting the initiative said ” This is an ongoing campaign supported by Letterkenny Tidy Towns. As part of our year retail promotion we wanted to ensure the recycling message was also promoted and the summer months is a good time to start. As people become more and more aware of the of the need to recycle we hope that Letterkenny can be seen as a leader.
We are pleased to see many outlets offering to fill “keep” cups and others introducing cups that are fully recyclable. We are pleased to be working with Letterkenny Tidy Towns and we hope that this initiative will encourage our customers become more aware and take responsibility to reduce their own waste”.
All the details on the Reuse and Save Initiative, what outlets accept travel cups and where you can purchase reusable cups across Letterkenny, will be posted on the ShopLK Facebook page over the summer months.
Letterkenny Chamber & Shop LK will also be working with Lee Gooch, The Naughty Alarm Clock on Highland radio who will be hosting competitions in July, where listeners will have a chance to win travel mugs.
A selection of Letterkenny coffee shops even stock travel/keep cups for purchase and some use bio-degradable cups, which are already environmentally friendly. Travel cups come in various sizes and styles and using one is a great way to help to protect the environment.
This Summer why not make the choice with your morning coffee to Reuse and Save.
