Eco–Friendly Castle Leslie…
Ireland’s Blue Book is delighted to announce that Castle Leslie Estate, Co Monaghan have introduced compostable coffee cups, which have been designed by local primary school children.
Castle Leslie are always seeking environment friendly options to help the planet, and this new cup will cut back on the 7,500-10,000 non-compostable cups used each year at the estate.
As a supporter of the local community, Castle Leslie sought out the local primary school to design the artwork for the compostable cups. Involving local children, not only results a quirky creative design for the cups, but also adds to their environmental education.
The end result is a wonderfully designed coffee cup, that are currently in use on the estate. The students who worked on the design came for a visit in June for a tour of the Castle followed by a treat of Afternoon Tea in the Castle.
This is just the first step for Castle Leslie, as they have also just launched a bio-degradable straw initiative where they will see the introduction of straws that are made from what is essentially ground seashells.
