Frequently asked questions

How does this help the environment?

Love that you're asking ! The UK uses 7m paper coffee cups a day, all poly-lined to hold liquid, which makes them almost impossible to recycle and a huge waste. Pioneering a way to fight that waste is Cup Club RCA, the world’s first coffee club experiment. With 500 solid cups, 6 collection points and 1 college willing to try something new, Cup Club RCA will show the UK how to drink coffee responsibly !

I've lost my membership card, what should I do ?

No worries ! Send us your original 'Welcome to Cup Club RCA' email and we will get you another membership card right away.

I've found a Cup Club cup, where can I return it?

You're a hero ! There are 6 Cup Club RCA drop points located around the RCA Kensington Campus. These are near the Canteen Cafe on the ground floor and the RCAfe on second floor, as well as near main exit points. Drop the cup in the bright yellow bag and our team member will wash and return them to the cafes.
