Greggs is a well-known name and have made the Greggs Pledge to help make the world a better place, whether that is funding breakfast clubs, using less packaging or committing to go carbon neutral by 2040.

Welcome to London’s smallest coffee shop; Loop at Piccadilly Circus! From using larger bags of milk to cut down on packaging to turning coffee grounds into face scrubs it is amazing what can be done from such a tiny space. ☕

Lola’s Cupcakes’ carts raise a smile in several of our ticket halls. Lola’s is committed to being more sustainable and are now delivering to many of their station locations by electric van. We are really impressed by how Lola’s are innovating to ‘give the glove the shove’ creating their own design for tongs that keep your treat pristine while replacing over 900,000 disposable gloves a year. 🧁

Bagel Factory are using a previous coffee shop’s fit-out for their shop! This is a great step that Bagel Factory are taking, especially regarding sustainability as it will really help save carbon.

  1. What an interesting read! I particularly like the sound of 58 and Co. initiative of used plastic taken from the ocean to resurface their front yard as well as Laura Sevenus Swimming Tuition use of the UV light sanitisation system. A special mention to Displaced Fragrances; their whole ethic sounds fantastic and makes me want to go and buy some Candles from them!
