We’re delighted to announce that we’ll be working with The Big Issue and Old Spike Roastery on their exciting new project, Change Please.
If you didn’t catch it on Famous, Rich and Homeless (BBC1) last night, Change Please is a groundbreaking new project training homeless people as baristas before offering the living wage for their work at pop-up coffee carts on the high street. The project also aims to find them full-time employment in the coffee industry within six months.
With sustainability and social-consciousness at the core of the project, it’s no surprise that Change Please have chosen Vegware cups. Made from renewable materials, with 72% less carbon in our plant-based cup lining than conventional coffee cups, the cups and their matching compostable lids ensure that Change Please can deliver their project in the most environmentally friendly way possible.
Keep an eye out for their eye-catching cups at a coffee cart near you, and be sure to tweet @ChangePlease and @Vegware.
