It is very hard to recycle disposable coffee cups, due to the mixture of paper and plastic in their inner lining designed to make them leakproof.
Every year in the US only, 25 billion disposable coffee cups are used once and thrown away, just to end up in landfill. It’s 2.5 billion in the UK.
BYOC (Bring Your Own Cup) and reduce you waste while enjoying your coffee, tea or any hot beverage!
You can ask most of the coffee shops to refill your reusable mug, thermos, or cup and guess what? Most of them will even give you a discount for doing that!
Many stores give a discount for BYOC. It’s time to go zero-waste! 😉
