offer the 25p coffee discount to users of *all* reusable cups

The SUSU shop currently refuses to apply the 25p coffee discount for reusable cups if the cup used is not the specific brand offered for sale in the shop. There are better cups available on the market. I cannot think of a reason for why this would be, other than to sell more cups - which is not very sustainable.

I firmly believe that SUSU should commit to what we've been saying about sustainability and offer the discount as a genuine incentive to carry reusable cups, and not to profit from sales. I suggest that this restriction should be lifted.

Hi Milosz,

To update you, we now do offer a discounted rate on hot drinks for anyone using any form of reusable cups, not just KeepCups, in all of our outlets!

If you have any further questions, please do feel free to get in touch with me via
