Smart, reusable, environmentally-friendly cups are now on sale in North Norfolk – and they should prove a popular choice for people who want to do their bit to save the planet.

The cups have been produced as part of North Norfolk District Council’s #whatSUP campaign – a push to slash the use of single-use plastic (SUP) in North Norfolk and beyond.

The “Refill not Landfill” branding is designed to spread the message that it’s easy to cut down on how much SUP we get through.

As well as helping the environment, using one of these cups can quickly pay for itself. Many coffee outlets, for example, give a discount to customers who provide their own reusable cups.

Reducing SUP use is particularly important in North Norfolk. No district in England has more Blue Flag beaches, and helping to reduce the amount of SUP can only help the district’s beaches and the marine life in the sea.

The cups are available for £5 from the North Norfolk Information Centre in Cromer.
