  • Latté Levy

    In January 2019, we introduced a 20p charge for single use coffee cups, just like the 5p plastic bag initiative.

    We are constantly looking for new ways to reduce the negative environmental impact of our business at every stage of our procedures, from selecting suppliers through to production and delivery. Currently over 380,000 single-use coffee cups are used across campus at the University of York per year, and we hope to see these figures dramatically decrease with the introduction of this scheme.

    The 20p levy is ring-fenced towards YORCUP and other sustainable initiatives carried out by YUSU’s Commercial Services and University of York’s Commercial Services. For more information visit Eat at York’s sustainability pages.

  • What's a YORCUP?

    The YORCUP scheme has been created as a way to help reduce the use of disposable cups across the University campus. YORCUPs are an environmentally friendly option you can use when you’re at home, at work, at university or just out and about.

    You can buy a £5.00 YORCUP from any outlet across University of York campus ( Including the York Sport Cafe), and your first hot drink is free. 

    Each time you’ve used your cup, you can return it to any outlet to be cleaned so you don’t even have to wash it yourself! We will then store the cup so, ready for when you next want a hot drink.

    Keep hold of your YORCUP sleeve and simply show this when you’re ordering your next hot drink at any outlet and they’ll provide you with a clean YORCUP for your tasty beverage. You will not only be helping us eliminate single-use plastic, but you’ll also be saving money and avoiding the 20p latte levy.
