We've taken action on takeaway coffee cups. Here at Waitrose & Partners we believe in doing everything we can to protect our environment, and that includes reducing the amount of plastic and packaging we use. Back in April 2018 we committed to removing disposable takeaway coffee cups from all our stores by autumn. 

And so we're proud to say that they are now no longer available in any of our shops.

It's been worth the effort. Making this change has saved an estimated 52 million takeaway cups a year going to landfill.

Rest assured, we are still delighted to offer you a free hot drink whenever you shop with us. All we ask is that you bring in your own reusable cup and swipe your myWaitrose card at the checkout, each time you visit.
