FoE KeepCup in action_preview

 

Our limited edition Friends of the Earth Keep Cups have been hugely popular since we launched them as part of the Sick of Plastic Campaign this time last year.

To celebrate one year of the campaign we've decided to offer them at a reduced rate for one week only in the lead up to Christmas.

Until now we have been exclusively gifting our Keep Cups to new monthly donors and those who give €100 or more.

 

But for the next week only, if you donate €50 or more to Friends of the Earth you will receive one of our Keep Cups in time for filling your Christmas stockings!

Why have our reusable cups been so popular?

In support of the growing community of sustainable growers and farmers in Ireland, Friends of the Earth joined the launch of Talamh Beo, a new grassroots organisation of farmers, growers and land based workers, launched outside the Department of Agriculture where they presented an oak tree to Minister Creed.

In preparation for the launch action Friends of the Earth hosted two film screening and banner painting sessions to encourage citizens to stand with small sustainable farmers and call on the government to support the vision of Talamh Beo - a living landscape where people and ecosystems can thrive together.
