We’re ‘Bring it Back’ winners!


At Green Street HQ, we’re super excited to announce our new campaign, launching soon, ‘Bothered to Borrow’, as part of the Bring it Back fund from Starbucks UK and Hubbub.

We’ll be working with our amazing Green Street pioneers, MyLahore, and our tech-whizz partners at Maybe* to pilot an innovative “borrowing” cup and food box system, with amazing digital rewards available for customers who get involved.

Our aim is simple: to cut waste from takeaway food and drink packaging, by promoting re-usable alternatives, saving businesses money, and protecting the environment too. Win, win!

Victoria Robertshaw, Founder of Green Street, said: “We are delighted that Green Street has been chosen by the Bring it Back judges to receive a substantial grant in the face of some really innovative competition. Through the trial we want to be able to demonstrate and develop a scalable solution that will, hopefully, grow to become a fully-fledged cup and food box borrowing scheme aimed at Bradford’s independent food and drink sector. As Bradford is Britain’s curry capital, this scheme could slash the enormous waste associated with any takeaway business and be truly game-changing for the city – and beyond.”
