Good saving, i always need coffee and helps reduce waste which sounds good to me!

Pret’s decision means the chain’s filter coffee would cost just 49p for customers bringing in their own cup.

You would also be paying £1.65 for a regular coffee latte, down from £2.15

Anything that might help all the plastic crap going in the oceans. I'm no environmental campaigner but reading the reports on plastic waste in the oceans recently is incredibly alarming. Have to stop using the stuff and throwing it away. Straws, lids, stirrers all really bad culprits.

I'd assume you can bring in any cup, I bring my own ones into Cafe Nero even sometimes one with the costa branding. I guess there is a limit as to what you class as "bring your own cup".... you will get glances if you bring a plastic bottle or a mug from home

nope.

They're not allowed to. To be fair, any company that sells fresh food is not allowed to.

'tis the law

Their coffee is rank but this is something that should always be encouraged.

I hope so. I think the heavier the subsidy to bring your own cup will increase uptake. Then lower or change the reward when the uptake reaches a certain %.

Personally I don't see any reason a filter couldn't be free to reusable cups via an app. Just charge for the hand crafted stuff.
Gah! Just accidentally voted cold with my big fat finger! Sorry 😥

Used to say kitchen in every branch which was not true and they had to amend it

No, I’m sure they give waste food to homeless charities
I find the quality of the filter coffee varies by establishment.

Waterloo one is particularly bad.

As I understand it, they are donated to charities e.g. homeless

Although Pret's coffee is a bit cheaper than the other chains, I find it generally tastes much worse

Theres a bakery near me and a woman said they throw away all unsold food and nobody is allowed to take it home or they get sacked for stealing! Dont get why
The way I read the article is the discount will be launched in the first week of 2018 meaning that’s when it starts not how long it will run for so I believe this will become permanent

No I often use my Starbucks £1 cup in costa and pret and never had an isssue. Can't see why they would have a problem.
The title needs to be clarified a bit. This is pret's policy going forward. They are also going to be designing their own reusable cup to release sometime in 2018. Been quite widely publicised. At the same time, it wouldn't matter if companies made coffee cups recyclable. Think Leon are one of the only companies that do.

I would assume you can use any cup - I'm going to use a Starbucks flask. Also worth noting that the milk you get with a coffee at pret is organic. So 49p for a filter and organic milk.

It will be a permanent offer, its just they are launching early January. Currently Pret gives a 25p discount for using any reusable cup, from January they will give 50p discount until further notice.

Pret do give their unsold food to hostels etc, they have a charity specifically to pay for refrigerated transport for the fresh food. There is no law about giving the food away, only for making sure it is fit for consumption, hence them having to use refrigerated vans. Also if Tesco can sell a sandwich for 2/3 days, Pret sandwitches that were made fresh that morning should still be good that evening!

To be fair that does sound a bit like incentivising firemen based on how many fires they put out... Oh there's another fire is there? How strange...

Oh, don't eat here. Our food is terrible. Oh, that's a lot of leftover food for me to take home again, oh well!
