Roscommon County Council has supplied reusable cups to its staff, in a bid to reduce or eliminate the use of disposal plastic cups.
Each year Roscommon County Council staff were using 18,000 plastic cups.
It was determined that plastic cups would not be provided in the new Roscommon county building.
Staff were supplied with a “Dopper” water bottle with the campaign logo as a replacement of the disposable plastic cup. The bottles are manufactured in the EU, using cradle to grave design, support a water projects in Nepal and are BPA free.
240 water bottles have been distributed to staff and 18,000 cups are prevented from being waste annually.
This initiative was part of the Greener Together Programme to ‘green’ Roscommon County Council.
