Why should we cut down on disposable coffee cup waste?

At the beginning of 2018, many of us discovered that it’s not actually as easy as we may have thought it was to recycle a disposable coffee cup.

The BBC released on their website that more than 99.75% of disposable coffee cups don’t actually get recycled.

They also stated that in 2011, it was estimated that 2.5 billion coffee cups are actually thrown away each year… which is more than likely going to be a much higher figure now. You can find more about this here.

The Independent also released that scientists estimate that 8 million metric tons of plastic ends up in our oceans each year. To put that into perspective, it’s the equivalent of a rubbish truck full of plastic going into the ocean every minute.

How can your brand help?
