Midwich bans non-recyclable cups as part of corporate social responsibility programme


By Newsdesk Diss


Midwich has got the recycling message, even though it meant the company had to buy 300 china mugs – and cups that cannot be recycled will be banned from its Diss head office by December.

Simon Evetts, Head of UK Facilities and Health and Safety, said: “This is a positive step in reducing our impact on the environment. We already have a number of waste management reduction initiatives in place and this is another significant reduction.”

The cups ban is part of the company’s new our-point CSR (corporate social responsibility) programme and meant that managing director Mark Lowe joined staff for a litter pick.

The plan also allows employees to volunteer during working hours on community initiatives and during 2019-2020 the company’s marketing material will be reduced and become totally recyclable.
