Coffee with a Conscience!
We’ve worked closely with our colleagues in the Sustainability Team at the University to ensure that we can offer a sustainable option in the Great Food at Leeds outlets for our customers who drink hot drinks. Our new, high quality, resuable KeepCups are available in nine different colours from all our cafés on campus for just £6.50, in addition our premium ‘long play’ cup is also available at £12.75 – plus you get a FREE hot drink* with the purchase of your KeepCup!
When you use your KeepCup at any of our outlets you will also receive 20p off your hot drink!* Think of it as a thank you for doing your bit for the environment.

We carefully chose which reusable cup to provide in our cafés and after reading about KeepCup, seeing the quality of the cups and the sustainable credentials, it was decided these were by far the best option – plus they look great too!
There are lots of benefits to using a KeepCup compared to a disposable cup:
- Do good feel good – The KeepCup breaks even after 15 uses, including washing, when compared with a disposable cup. This means every KeepCup used more than 15 times is saving energy as well as waste.
- Less plastic – There is enough plastic in 20 disposable cups and lids to make a KeepCup.
- Reusable, not disposable – KeepCups have been tested to 1,500 uses by our industrial designers. They’re estimated to last at least three years.
- More trees, less landfill – Over one year the KeepCup compared to disposable cups, reduces water use by up to 90%.2 Most disposable cups are lined with polyethylene which makes them non recyclable. Disposable cups that are ‘compostable’ require commercial composting to biodegrade.
At Great Food at Leeds we care about the food and products we provide, to read about the extensive work we do please visit our story page.
