Glastonbury Festival supporting British steel with 250,000 reusable stainless steel cups for 2016
Going to be fun drinking coffee out of those, no? But the important bit:
Teaming up with APS Metal Pressing Ltd, the cups are made from recycled steel which is smelted in Sheffield.
Mr Eavis said he wanted to support the UK steel industry.
“Week after week, there’s a story in the national press about jobs in the UK steel industry being put at risk. There’s seemingly no end to the negative slide of this critical industry and with it the jobs, skills and infrastructure are lost and won’t be replaced.”
The bit of the British steel industry falling over being that bit of it that makes virgin steel. Because everyone’s using recycled steel these days.
