Reducing plastic waste

It is estimated that 2.5 billion disposable cups are thrown away each year in the UK and last year fewer than 1 in 400 were recycled, meaning millions end up in landfill.

A JCR green sustainability initiative to reduce the amount of plastic waste in College has led to the introduction of our new Magdalene KeepCups, a reusable coffee cup you keep and reuse rather than throw away.

Our brand new KeepCups come in two sizes and three colourful designs and cost just £7.50 for a medium (340ml) or £8.50 for a large (454ml).

Our cups can be used in Magdalene College Library (Tom has given them the Librarian thumbs up) and can also get you some great hot drinks discounts in all University Department Cafés and Butteries, as well as other much-loved coffee houses across Cambridge.

Magdalene Keep Cups

Once you've used your KeepCup 15 times you’ve reached the breakeven point on its life cycle. Every time you use it after that it is a bonus for the planet!

Baristas love KeepCups because the sizes match the standard takeaway cup sizes, coffee and tea drinkers love KeepCups because they can enjoy their tasty beverage without using a disposable cup and we love KeepCup because of the huge environmental impact they can have in reducing plastic waste.
