Chimps Environment Policy

As of 1st June 2019, Cha Char Chimps is going GREENER.

We will no longer be using polystyrene (Styrofoam) cups at Woburn, Wolverton, Shenley Book End, Broughton & Old Stratford. We are switching to fully compostable-biodegradable cups & lids.

We have a responsibility to set the right example to our little Chimps by reducing our carbon footprint.

We Can No Longer Recycle our Cups

Styrofoam is non-biodegradable and appears to last forever. It’s resistant to the breaking down of materials by photons originating from light. This, combined with the fact that Styrofoam floats, means that large amounts of polystyrene have accumulated along coastlines and waterways around the world. It is considered a main component of marine debris.😲

Styrofoam can be recycled, but the market for recycled Styrofoam is diminishing. Many recycling companies no longer accept polystyrene products. 😢 Milton Keynes is one of them.

As compostable products are more expensive, our entry price will uplift by 20p from 1st June 2019.

We hope you understand this is an environment-driven decision.

Bring Your Own Cup!

If you are able to bring your own re-useable cup (labelled with your name and drink) you WILL NOT have to pay the uplift.

We will let you know the discount code to receive your 20p discount online at the end of May – so don’t forget your travel cup!
