Clarkson Evans has eliminated the use of non-recyclable disposable cups in favour of an environmentally friendly alternative.

The electrical giant has removed all takeaway-style coffee cups from its staff canteen in Gloucester and will now provide ceramic mugs instead. Staff working out in the field are being encouraged to use branded insulated thermal flasks. 

The change follows recent publicity of the plastic pollution crisis, as the company vows to play its part in helping to reduce unnecessary plastic waste. 

Clarkson Evans’ Operations Director, Darren Turley says: “The decision to no longer use disposable plastic-coated cups forms part of our wider commitment to ensure the business runs a more environmentally friendly operation.”

“We hope this change will have a positive impact in the fight against plastic and would like to encourage other businesses to follow our lead by embracing environmentally friendly alternatives,” continued Darren.

The switch to reusable ceramic mugs also brings a financial saving so Clarkson Evans have decided to donate £1,000 of this to Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospitals Charity, the company’s Staff Charity of the Year.
