We are proud to announce on National Refill Day (19 June) that in a bid to be more environmentally friendly visitors will receive a 10% discount off their hot drinks in our restaurants if they bring in their own reusable cup.
Annual members will receive their usual 10% discount plus an additional 10% if they bring in their own reusable cup.
But this discount is not just for one day. Reusable cups are also available to purchase in the Hever Shop priced from £6.00 (staff and members discounts apply).
Learn more about why more coffee cups are not easy to recycle here:
Earlier this year solar panels were installed on the roof of the biomass store in order to save money on electricity and increase our use of renewable energy.
From last year visitors to the Hever Shop were given the option to have a free paper bag or pay 5p for a plastic bag or £2.95 for a specially designed Hever Castle Bag for Life.
Reusable plastic bottles are also now available to purchase in the Hever Shop and in the Restaurants with water points around the site and paper straws have replaced plastic ones in the Restaurants.
Senior general manager Ian Goodwin said: “The reusable cup initiative is the latest in a range of environmental changes we have made in order to be more green. We hope the discount will encourage our customers to bring in their own cups or buy one when they next visit.”
