NHS Scotland trial the Corretto Cup

07 August 2018

We are pleased to announce that in conjunction with Zero Waste Scotland, Ayrshire & Arran NHS is the first health board in Scotland to sign up to trial the use of reusable Corretto Cups. The trial will initially take place in the dining halls of University Hospital Crosshouse, with the view to rolling it out across the organisation, and all other Scottish health boards, if it is a success. 

The trial started on Monday 6th August, when members of staff based at University Hospital Crosshouse began receiving 10p discount off the price of a hot drink when using a blue reusable Corretto Cup. Staff will also get every tenth drink free when using a newly introduced loyalty card. 

Not only will NHS staff be saving money on every hot drink, they will also be helping to reduce the amount of single-use cup waste the hospital sends to landfill. The Corretto Cup can be used many times and at the end of its life can easily be recycled in regular plastic recycling bins.
