Wanstead Climate Action conducts plastic survey at local coffee shops


As part of the Plastic Free July campaign, Wanstead Climate Action carried out a survey of nine coffee shops on or near the High Street to rate their efforts in reducing plastic waste.

“Responses ranged from ‘couldn’t care’ to ‘you won’t find plastic here’. La Bakerie, Bare Brew and City Place Coffee came out on top, offering discounts if you bring your own cup. Some shops have plans to source glass bottled drinks, and City Place even grow their own micro herbs,” said a spokesperson.
