Britain’s love affair with coffee comes at a huge cost to the environment:
Each year in the UK, over 3 BILLION disposable coffee cups go to landfill.
Disposable paper cups have a thin plastic coating. This prevents them from turning to mush while you enjoy your flat white, but it also means they're almost never recycled.
No wonder reusable coffee cups are catching on! And eco-friendliness isn't the only reason - we think a reusable cup provides a better coffee experience - no burnt fingertips, no leaks or spills! Most UK coffee shops will even give you a discount. So you can buy a stylish reusable cup and within a couple months it will have paid for itself!
In the UK, we use millions of tea bags every day. Everyone knows that a cup of tea makes everything better. But sadly that doesn't include the environment. Most tea bags contain heat-resistant plastic, so they're only 70-80% compostable.
If you prefer your tea plastic free, make loose leaf tea and take it on the go.
