Pret A Manger to switch to compostable cutlery by The Good Shopping Guide | Jul 20, 2018 | Ethical Shopping Blog | 0 comments Popular cafe, Pret, has revealed plans to introduce compostable cutlery across all UK stores by the end of 2019. The move follows a trial of wooden cutlery, which received negative feedback from customers. First we trialled wooden cutlery, and you told us it just wasn’t up to scratch. The good news is we will introduce compostable cutlery to all our UK shops next year.In the meantime, we are testing keeping cutlery behind our tills to see if this also makes a difference. pic.twitter.com/7tNixPM3cl— Pret (@Pret) July 17, 2018 Pret also recently announced a 50p reusable coffee cup discount.
