How can reusable coffee cups contribute to the fight against plastic pollution?
One of the easiest ways to reduce plastic waste is to invest in a Reusable Silicone Cup. A report from the UK government states that disposable coffee cups are made from paper and lined with plastic, making them waterproof. Most recycling facilities cannot remove this plastic lining. Usually, after a cup is used, the paper portion becomes contaminated with its contents. UK and European markets do not accept contaminated food packaging.
The UK uses and throws away 2.5 billion Coffee Cups annually - enough to circle the globe roughly five and a half times - yet only one in 400 -- 0.25 percent - is recycled. You can make a real barista experience with Wild & Stone's Reusable Coffee Cups. As a result, we have chosen glass as a material so that your drink won't be affected.
