YORCUP

When buying your next drink, show your sleeve and it will be served in a clean YORCUP. Avoid the 20p fee and receive a 20p discount!

What is it?

The YORCUP scheme has been created as a way to help reduce the use of disposable cups across the University campus. The high quality University of York branded YORCUPs are an environmentally friendly option you can use when you're at home, at work, at uni or just out and about. 

YORCUP is part of a joint initiative with EAT at York and YUSU outlets and combines the convenience of a disposable cup with the environmental benefits of a reusable cup.

How does it work?

You can buy a £5.00 YORCUP from any outlet across campus, and your first hot drink is free. 

Each time you've used your cup, you can return it to any outlet to be cleaned so you don't even have to wash it yourself! We will then store the cup so, ready for when you next want a hot drink.

If you return your cup to any of our outlets, keep hold of your YORCUP sleeve and simply show this when you're ordering your next hot drink at any outlet and they'll provide you with a clean YORCUP for your tasty beverage. You will not only be helping us eliminate single-use plastic, but you'll also be saving money and avoiding the 20p latte levy. #ChooseToReuse #YORCUP
