Why are reusable coffee cups so important in the fight against plastic?
According to a report from the UK government, disposable coffee cups are made from paper and lined with plastic, which makes them waterproof. This plastic lining cannot be removed by most recycling facilities. Once used, the paper part of the cup is usually contaminated by the cup’s contents. There is no UK or European market for contaminated paper food packaging. 2.5 billion coffee cups are used and thrown away each year in the UK - enough to stretch around the world roughly five and a half times - but less than 1 in 400 - just 0.25% - are recycled.
Investing in a reusable coffee cup is one of the easiest ways to do your bit and reduce plastic waste.
