What we're doing
Reducing single use plastic on campus
We've removed all single use plastic cups and bags in our outlets and trialling paper straws and wooden cutlery in selected outlets.
Having an ethical commitment to coffee
We use Union Hand Roasted Coffee, a small independent and ethically committed roaster and supplier, for our coffee across campus.
Supporting local farmers
Where possible, we try to source local ingredients and use local suppliers, which helps to reduce our CO2 emissions. We believe in using local farmers that produce great products and take care of their animals.
Reducing our impact
We work closely with the Environmental Sustainability team in Estates, the Students' Union and other University of Warwick departments to try and reduce our impact on the environment.
Reducing food waste
Any hot food and sandwiches left at the end of the day in our outlets are sold at reduced prices.
There is also a Foodbank drop off point in Rootes Grocery Store to collect food items to help local people. We're working in partnership with the Students' Union and Coventry Foodbank.
A healthy you
Providing healthy options that are easy to find and promoted in all our outlets.
We aim to provide for different lifestyles, dietary requirements and budgets. Undertaking research to help guide our decisions, we often change our healthy options offer where possible.
