University of Cambridge goes compostable with Vegware 

 

Every month, the University of Cambridge saves 1.5 tonnes of carbon. How? By switching to compostable packaging, creating clear bin signage, training catering staff and engaging students.

The University of Cambridge Catering Services use Vegware catering disposables made from plants, not plastic.

All Vegware products, from takeaway boxes and plates to coffee cups and cutlery, is recycled with food waste.

Vegware's environmental team helped set up the right waste system for all used Vegware to be composted together with food waste, and ran Green Day events to help students understand the new bin system.
