Introducing our new office mascot…Cino!

Background

Cino, our office mascot, arrived at Roast & Ground HQ in a box of Fairtrade Columbian Superior Beans on the 1st April 2016.  At first we thought it was a bit of an April Fools, however he soon found himself settled amongst the rest of the team and we’re pleased to announce he’s a Full-Time employee.  Cino will be making regular appearances, whether helping out with consumables deliveries or entertaining on social media, so keep your bananas peeled for him here: https://twitter.com/RoastGround.

We hope you grow to love him as much as we do!

Disposable cups cause a stir across the UK

Disposable cups have received a lot of bad press recently after, MP Rory Stewart, told fellow MPs they posed a “huge” problem, as the majority are sent for incineration or to landfill sites.  Mr Stewart suggested last year’s tax on plastic bags was such a success that cups should be the next item to be taxed, in order to make consumers think twice about their wastage.  However the MP’s Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), were quick to comment saying there were "no plans" for a tax.
