Gatwick Airport launches reusable coffee cups trial

Gatwick Airport has launched a trial where passengers are offered reusable cups instead of disposable paper ones. The reusable cups can then be dropped off at designated points before passengers board their aircraft. The coffee shop chain said it was aiming to save 7,000 disposable cups over the course of the month-long trial at the West Sussex airport. The reusable coffee cups, once returned at one of five points throughout the terminal, are then collected by the airport's waste management team before being washed, sterilised and returned to Starbucks. Starbucks said on the first day of the trial on Monday more than 300 free reusable cups were given out to customers.
