The #ContactlessCoffee campaign has been launched by City to Sea in partnership with Better Food to advise cafes and restaurants on how to safely use reusable coffee cups.

With the Tourism and Hospitality sector starting to open its doors, it is important that we don’t lose sight of the sustainability shifts made in our city region. Many organisations have already made a change – removing and reducing the use of single-use plastics or introducing reusable options.

There are still lots of ways we can ensure we don’t increase plastic production and consumption. With current Government guidance stating that: “It is up to the individual business to decide whether they allow the use of reusable cups or containers during this period”, City To Sea has developed its guidance to highlight the latest in best practice when it comes to reusables.

All the advice and guidance including a short video to support businesses in making the right decision can be found on the City to Sea website:
