A Small Action Towards the New Economy…..
Each month, Sustainability Support Group will be suggesting an action which Friends could take to further our sustainability witness.  This month……….

Friends, have you wished there was an alternative to throw-away cups which are so handy when you are travelling? The good news is, that
there is - a bamboo cup with a silicone lid, which you can buy in Waitrose or The Real Food Cafe situated in the library. Not only is it multi-use,
bamboo is also light, durable and sustainable…… and many places will offer you a discount when you present it to be filled with their coffee.
