Local primary school designs the artwork for Castle Leslie Estate’s environmentally friendly compostable cups.

At Castle Leslie Estate we are always seeking environment friendly options to help the planet. That’s why we have decided to introduce compostable cups on the estate. In doing so, we are helping our guests to also help the environment.

We are also big supporters of our local community so we asked our local primary school to design the artwork for our compostable cups.

Here is the finished product, which we think are wonderful and 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 cup will cut back on 7500-10000 non-compostable cups each year for us.

In addition to the new cups, we have just launched our bio-degradable straw initiative where we will be using straws made from what is essentially ground seashells.
