The British club near Mina Port has removed all plastic glasses and replaced them with compostable corn starch cups and has also binned all plastic straws. It’s also launched a “water by the jug” initiative this year across its 13 food and beverage outlets. Guests are encouraged to opt for a jug of water instead of plastic bottles and since March, over 2,000 litre jugs have been served. In the forthcoming months, it will be replacing its one-use cutlery with compostable corn starch equivalents.
