is RSA’s cup of tea
Commercial Foundation is proud to provide RSA Group with mugs to replace single use plastics across their business. Up to 6,000 earthenware mugs inscribed with the message From single use to social value will replace plastic cups across all sites. Each mug generates £18.50 of social value.
“We’re delighted to buy the mugs through Commercial Foundation, which means we can positively affect young people’s lives as part of a larger project to remove all single use plastic from our UK sites,” says Francesca Campbell, Corporate Responsibility Manager for RSA Group. “The removal of single use plastics is a positive message, and adding social value is something everyone can get on board with.”
The Foundation is also talking to Francesca about other social value generating projects that will make a big impact in RSA Groups' goal to reduce single use plastics.
Supporting young people
We Do. Print Initiative
Commercial Foundation supports young people from challenging backgrounds by enabling them to become work-ready, resilient individuals. This is achieved via the No Limits training programme and volunteer work experience at Commercial Foundation’s WE DO. Print.
One of the many reasons why the Commercial Foundation #NoLimits programme is so successful is the practical work experience the young people are involved with.
Here Kareta Bradbury and Fiona Clarke, job coaches at the Foundation, explain why projects that include elements like the RSA mug fulfilment are so vitally important.
Working towards a better future
WE DO. Print. offers print services from flyers, brochures and business cards to large format items and promotional merchandise, including the mugs similar to those produced for RSA.
“I’ve really enjoyed working on this project, which is the largest order completed by the Foundation to date,” says Rachel aged 17, one of the team of six young people who worked on the mugs. “This has been one of the most inspiring projects so far. It’s very exciting knowing that the work we do has such an impact.”Over £25,000 generated in social value
