We’re delighted to be able to tell you that our campaign to persuade cafes, bars and restaurants in Wanstead to stop using plastic straws has got its first supporters.
Bare Brew, the hip new cafe at the Snaresbrook end of the High Street, has enthusiastically joined the campaign and is already using rather fetching candy-striped paper straws.
More Italy, the wonderful gastronomia run by Vincenzo Cossaro, has come on board and ditched its plastic straws.
The Larder, which needs no introduction, has removed its plastic straws from the counter and is having a delivery of paper straws this weekend.
The ever-popular Cuckfield is running down its plastic supplies and moving to paper-only from mid-February.
THANK YOU TO ALL THESE EXCELLENT WANSTEAD ESTABLISHMENTS. Please do support them as they play their part in doing the right thing.
Other establishments are of course more than welcome to join in – let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be sure to spread the word.
