What is the Shrewsbury Cup?

The Shrewsbury Cup is a reusable cup for hot and cold drinks available in cafes across Shrewsbury.

Customers simply pay a £1 deposit for a Shrewsbury Cup, enjoy their drink and then return the cup to any participating café to get their £1 back.

The cups are washed and ready to be used again.

Why use the Shrewsbury Cup?

7 million single-use paper cups a day get thrown away in the UK! Less than 1% of single use paper cups get recycled.

Reusable coffee cup schemes offer a simple way to solve this problem!
