KeepCup LSHTM - single cup.jpg

LSHTM branded KeepCups are now available from the Refectory (Keppel Street) and Seacole Social Cafe (Tavistock Place).

There is enough plastic in 20 disposable cups and lids to make just 1 KeepCup, so you'll be reducing waste in no time! 

They cost £10 (your first drink is FREE!), with an additional 10p off every hot drink purchased across all LSHTM cafes and eateries.


Profits from the sale of LSHTM merchandise are donated to help students who experience financial hardship.  

Good for the planet, good for your wallet. 


The Seacole Cafe on Tavistock Place is committed to sustainability in its operations. Keepcups are on sale and disposable cups are compostable Vegware types. 

Eco-friendly cleaning products are also used to keep areas clean and fresh without the use of harsh, synthetic chemical solvents.

The Refectory and Seacole Cafe offer free water re-fills, and everyone has access to the dedicated fountains across Keppel Street Building, and Tavistock Place.  

To coincide with the launch of LSHTM's new Centre on Climate Change and Planetary Health in May 2019, Catering Services developed the Planetary Pick - new meal options which align to the recent planetary health diet recommendations developed by the EAT-Lancet Commission.

Customers can enjoy a selection of dishes that incorporates health as well as sustainability, in addition to collecting points with the new loyalty card.

Visit the Refectory or Seacole Cafe and give it a go!

LSHTM is partnered with Olleco, who collects our waste cooking oil and processes it into high grade bio fuel which can be used as a renewable energy source. 

This reduces the environmental impact of our waste stream and provides an alternative to fossil fuels. 

The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine is a Fairtrade accredited University. We are committed to supporting Fairtrade in the products we procure, and are seeking new ways to incorporate and promote Fairtrade across catering and other services.
