UCC Launches Bio Green Cafe

21 Nov 2018

Ellie O’Byrne has lunch at UCC’s Bio Green Café, where there are no single-use plastic utensils or plastic packaging.

It looks like a normal, deli-style café, with its pastries, salads, soups and rolls, coffee machine, and drinks fridge.

But Bio Green Café is part of a revolution. The café, in UCC’s Biosciences Institute, is a plastic-free zone. A progressive pilot project for catering company KSG, the café has no single-use plastic, either in the kitchen or on offer to customers.
