Here’s a story that caught our eye. North Yorkshire coffee shop Baltzersen’s, based in Harrogate, has since 2018 stopped using disposable paper cups. By their own admission in this Facebook post they have lost out financially because of that decision, but still stand by it as the right thing to do. As it approaches Christmas and the larger chains start pushing their seasonal drinks, they also change their disposable cups as well, why not take the opportunity to buy a reusable cup instead and do your bit for the planet.
We like Baltzersen’s a lot; strong environmental ethos and a commitment to source locally whenever possible. If you are visting that side of Yorkshire, why not give them a visit? (They also give you free cake on your birthday).
