Running for four weeks from Tuesday 14 August, LUSH's #carrythecup pop up vegan cafe in Soho will give away free coffee to anyone who pops in with a reusable cup.

The venture is a collaboration with Change Please, a social enterprise who train homeless people to become coffee barista, it serves up a superb, award-winning brew. LUSH want to highlight the huge way to go we have on coffee cup waste - the UK gets thorough 500,000 disposable cups a day and only 1% are currently recycled.

As well as calling in for a free cuppa, the cafe will be full of inspiring positive action ideas you can take away to help think about how you can reduce your waste.

Visitors to the shop will also be able to purchase one of 500 limited edition LUSH reusable coffee cups (£12.00 each), which are made from six used cups. As is LUSH's Bath Oil Box, which is also made from recycled coffee cups (read more about those here).
