Video footage from a unique member’s event in June has been made into an engaging video about the Simply Cups initiative. The video includes commentary from a number of key members, including new member Bunzl Catering Supplies, represented by Joanna Gilroy, Strategic Customer Sustainability Manager.
Joanna’s remit is to work with Bunzl customers to find responsible solutions for their waste management. She collaborates with them to help transform their waste into a valuable resource and to change the misconceptions surrounding waste.
Paul Willcocks, Director, Exclusive Brands, Bunzl Catering Supplies said: “Disposable hot cups represent a significant proportion of the waste stream and as Founding members of the Simply Cup scheme, we are committed to playing our part in bringing solutions to operators to effectively manage this stream. Simply Cups offers an environmentally beneficial solution that is proven to work, whilst also being commercially beneficial to operators. We very much look forward to facilitating an introduction to the scheme to our customers that will guarantee the recycling of some of the 2.5 billion paper cups currently in the UK which would otherwise be sent to incineration or landfill.”
