with No Comments

The company faced backlash after it emerged that passengers wanting to fill their own reusable cups with hot drinks bought on board were being denied. A spokesperson for the rail operator has confirmed the change in policy, which they say reflects their “ongoing commitment to manage our environmental impact”. Around 2.5 billion disposable cups are used in the UK each year, creating around 250,000 tonnes of waste.
