These Alchemy-branded ‘keep cups’ represent part of our efforts here in Alchemy to go 100 per cent green. We’re doing away with as much plastic, packaging, straws etc as we can as we move towards a wholly eco-friendly offering.
This includes joining the Conscious Cup campaign, which offers discounts to customers bringing in reusable cups, proper cutlery, glass bottles, etc etc. It will take time but we are definitely getting there and we really appreciate your support along the way.
Note that our sister companies Joe’s Specialty Coffee Shops in Arnotts on Liffey Street in Dublin 1 and on Leeson Street and on Montague Street in Dublin 2 and the Itsa Cafes in Arnotts and in Dun Laoghaire are doing the same. They also have branded reusable cups for sale in their stores.
Our Alchemy cups are also really good value and we sell them at a lower price than a standard keep cup. They are made from the same reinforced glass and have a removable rubber sleeve (unlike the cork sleeve keep cup) so the glass can go in the dishwasher. (Note: the rubber lid and rubber sleeve should be washed by hand in tepid water.)
These cups are also 100% Irish-made so we are keeping it local too.
A lot done, more to do . . .
