Plastic cups a thing of the past on all Knight Build sites

Knight Build has replaced all plastic single use cups with immediate effect.

We are determined to do our bit for the environment and will replace all plastic cups on all of our sites and head office.  These have been replaced with cups that look and feel a lot like plastic, but are in fact made of plant starch and are 100% biodegradable and 100% compostable.

Rather than ending up in the worlds oceans for thousands of years destroying habitats and killing marine life, these cups will decompose in less than 6 months.

At Knight Build we preferred a big bang approach, implementing the change with immediate effect rather than the gradual transition over a  number of years, which is the favoured approach by high street coffee chains and supermarkets.
