Sustainability and Squeeze Box

It's not easy being green...

But here at Squeeze Box, we're committed to being green! As a Students' Union, we proudly work towards being a Sustainable Union.

Here are some of the steps we take to support our sustainability at Staffs:


We offer milk alternatives 

You can choose to have Oat milk, Coconut or Soya in all your favourite hot drinks, milkshakes, and smoothies. There's no extra charge, it's vegan friendly, and switching to dairy alternatives, the most sustainable option, can reduce your environmental impact.

We encourage you to bring your own mug

There's nothing like your favourite hot drink in your very own mug. Here at Squeeze Box to encourage you to help save the planet, we also offer 25p off any drink when you bring your own reusable mug.

We reduce our plastic waste

To help reduce plastic, we only use 'PLA' cups, lids, and straws. But what is PLA...PLA is corn starch, and will not be affected by this as it's compostable and biodegrades in 3-6 months.

We offer Fairtrade products

Working with Fairtrade is a TEA-rific way to be sustainable, as Fairtrade farmers are encouraged to live, work and grow in a sustainable way. Find out more about Fairtrade here
