You can also enjoy your first coffee for free when you buy a reusable cup in store…

In a bid to banish plastic from their Dubai stores, Pret A Manger has launched a new initiative that encourage customers to bring their own reusable cup.

Every time you bring a reusable cup or flask to Pret A Manger, you’ll get Dhs3 off your purchase. Wallet and environmentally friendly? We’re in.

Not only that, if you purchase a reusable cup in store, you’ll get your first coffee for free.

Pret A Manger now has four stores in Dubai; two in Dubai International Airport, one at The Dubai Mall, and DIFC, which opened in April 2019.

While three dirhams might not seem like a lot, it works out at a Dhs21 per week saving if you’re used to getting a daily coffee, and an impressive annual saving of Dhs1,092.

Plus, it’s another simple, easy way to reduce your plastic use in day-to-day life.

Pret A Manger follows in the footsteps of Costa Coffee, who announced last month that they would be offering customers Dhs2 off their coffee when they use a reusable cup.

We hope many more coffee shop chains follow suit!
