At the serene Twywell Hills and Dales, Barista Bus, a charming mobile café owned by Nicola, is at the forefront of environmental innovation with its adoption of a new product, "The Good Cup."

Known for her delightful homemade cakes and delicious coffees, Nicola has always been a proponent of sustainability and has sourced these new sustainable cups after searching a variety of options available online.

A significant part of the sustainability efforts at Twywell involves the waste management system. The waste contractors recycle 90% of the contents of Twywell bins, thanks to a contract orchestrated by the management company, Groundwork Kettering. This initiative is part of a broader commitment to environmental stewardship in the area.

For years, the necessary use of plastic lids was a consistent environmental concern for Barista Bus. In her search for a more sustainable alternative, Nicola discovered "The Good Cup." This innovative product is made entirely from a single piece of cardboard, with no plastic lining, and features a lid that simply folds down to create a spill-proof seal. This design allows the entire cup to be recycled with ease, presenting a significant step forward in reducing plastic waste.

Nicola's journey towards sustainability is driven by a balance of affordability and environmental responsibility. "We've been looking for a product like this for years, and it’s exciting to see something come to the market that ticks the sustainability box," Nicola stated. Her goal remains to find affordable, sustainable, and recyclable products that also appeal to her customers, acknowledging that cost is a critical factor in these challenging times.

As Barista Bus continues to serve the community, Nicola's ongoing search for UK-produced sustainable products highlights her dedication to environmental excellence. By adopting "The Good Cup," Nicola demonstrates that practical and eco-friendly solutions can be seamlessly incorporated into our daily lives, setting a precedent for other businesses to follow.
