One man, one cup
A charity in Bude that promotes cleaner seas says it is “thrilled to bits” the environment minister was pictured carrying the reusable cup it sent him into an important meeting.
The Cleaner Seas Project sent Michael Gove the turquoise cup after seeing him using a non-recyclable one before Christmas.
He was pictured carrying his new cup into 10 Downing Street yesterday, and then had it on the table in front of him for a picture of a cabinet meeting.
Avril Sainsbury, from the group, said: “It’s a learning curve for everybody and we thought it would be a lovely gesture to send him a pack for Christmas.
“It’s great to see somebody at the top really taking notice.”
She continued: “It’s come back to grassroots – the groups and organisations on the battle ground, not just in Bude, but nationwide and globally – which is really nice.”
