In the UK we use 7 million disposable coffee cups every day – that’s 2.5 billion every year!

 

The government is in the process of introducing a 25p “Latte levy” on disposable coffee cups, however this is simply not enough, because there is a big disconnect between their alleged recyclability and the rate at which they are actually recycled.

 

Although cups are technically recyclable, something that some coffee companies actively promote on their packaging, the vast majority of cups do not end up being recycled, in fact less than 1% of coffee cups in the UK are recycled.

 

This is because they are often too contaminated & they are lined with plastic polyethylene to make them waterproof, meaning the materials are hard to seperate and they cannot be recycled at standard recycling plants and have to be taken to special facilities, only three of which exist in the UK.

 

Figures from the Independent, state:

  • UK throws away 2.5 billion disposable coffee cups every year

  • Less than 1 per cent of coffee cups are recycled

  • Half a million cups are littered every day

  • Packaging producers only pay for 10 per cent of the cost of packaging disposal and recycling

 

So, if you love your coffee, please get yourself a reusable cup! Together, we can make a dent in the above figures and you might just save yourself a pretty penny on drinks from your favourite cafe spots as well as avoid that Latte levy.
