Here at PLPR HQ the most exciting news of the week comes from one of our very own clients! We’ve been working with Boston Tea Party to announce that from TODAY it will be banning disposable coffee cups from all 21 cafes. The team are out and about visiting sites around the country, busily meeting journalists, arranging interviews and all over the social media buttons (there might be a spot of coffee and mixed cake in there to). Check our social channels @pamlloydpr to catch up on all the latest goings on.
