Newsletter: Free napkins for Parkinson’s Awareness Week, new biobags, new eco carrier bags

Vegware_stamps_newsletterHellooo!

Cafes of the UK! Fancy some free napkins to help raise awareness for Parkinson’s UK? Oh and we’ve now got biobags and compostable carrier bags.

 

1 800 free napkins, 1 good cause

We are seeking 250 cafes and foodservice operators around the UK to take part in the big campaign for for Parkinson’s Awareness Week, 7-13 April. Sign up by this Friday 21st at www.vegware.com/parkinsonsuk for your campaign pack of 800 free napkins and awareness poster.

Why? One person in every 500 has Parkinson’s. Enjoyable activities like visiting a cafe can become a big challenge due to the lack of control. To raise awareness and improve understanding of the condition, we have teamed up with Parkinson’s UK to create special branded napkins.

And if you’re on twitter, sign up for the Thunderclap – a grand synchronised tweet on 7th April to raise awareness together. And tweet away with @vegware and @ParkinsonsUK using the hashtag #incontrol.

And here’s our newest addition to the range…

Our new bioplastic carriers fit the bill perfectly – they are bio-based, certified compostable and dual use!
