Students at Worldwide School of English raise awareness about the use of eco-friendly cups

Worldwide School of English in Auckland, New Zealand recently started selling reusable branded coffee cups in their café to reduce the use of single-use cups. 

As part of the school’s sustainability policy, the reusable cups give students the option to reduce their carbon footprint, while also giving them a discount on their drink if purchased in their reusable cup.

A group of students at Worldwide School of English felt so passionately about the reusable initiative that they decided to make a video for the school to encourage other students and staff to ditch the single-use cups.

Cleve Brown, owner of Worldwide School of English said: “The video was made totally spontaneously and on their own volition by a group of students in one of our Level 5, B2 classes. I was very surprised and happy to see the video that they made.”

Worldwide School of English are committed to the environment and have a number of policies in place to reduce carbon footprint, including:

  •  All low emission LED lights throughout the school
  •  New (2016) state of the art heating and aircon system
  •  Bike parking outside the school
  •  Dual flush toilets and low flow water
  •  Filtered drinking water provided FOC to all - bring your own bottle
  •  Recycling bins
  •  Recycled toilet paper
  •  30% reduction in paper used since 2017
  •  All students and 95% of staff (including the 2 owners) use sustainable transport to WWSE (public transport, bicycle, scooter, walk)
