2018 - A Review

As Christmas comes to a close, the madness recedes and a New Year is about to begin it gives myself and the team here lots of food for thought.

2018 has definitely seen a shift in consumer behaviour and more than ever are people interested in what they are buying and the impact this is having on the environment. We too have been mindful of this and over the past year we have been looking at ways we can reduce our impact on the world around us.

One brilliant new initiative to come out of this work was our recycled Sub Fusc. With 18 plastic bottles in each one we managed to help recycle a whopping 9,936 bottles that would have normally gone to landfill.

We have also listened to your requests and increased our reusable KeepCup range so you can enjoy your coffee or tea on the go and stop using disposable cups.

Increasing our made to order college range has helped us give you more choice of product but, as we only make it when you need it, wit has also helped us avoided unnecessary waste and overstocks. Another win!

Some of you may have noticed that your deliveries come in a range of different boxes, this is also an initiative to try and reuse as much packaging as we can to give it a longer life before it is recycled.

New Year’s Resolutions

There are many more initiatives and processes that we implemented in 2018, however, we know our work isn’t done and in 2019 we will be looking at what else we can change and improve to keep us moving forward in this area. All suggestions are welcome so please do email us at shop@oushop.com if you have any ideas.

Thank you again for your support in 2018 and we look forward to seeing you next year.
