Goal / impact
When you are on the go, it is easy to forget that the little things you do can have a big impact. Take that cup of coffee you pick up at the café on the way to work; have you ever thought about where it goes after you’ve had your morning pick-me-up? And what about the multitude of other people who also grab a hot drink whilst they are out and about? In the UK alone, 8 million disposable cups are thrown away every single day , and globally 500 billion cups are produced and used . Many of these cups are a mixture of plastic and paper, making recycling in the regular way impossible; in the UK, only 1 in 400 of these cups is recycled . Thankfully, we can cut down on our waste production without cutting out coffee completely! Reusable cup brands such as KeepCup and ecoffee cup are great options, or you can grab your favourite mug.
