Eco Cup: WAS: £10.50 NOW: £7.88

It's estimated that in the USA alone there are an enormous 25 billion 'disposable' coffee cups thrown away each year. Due to health regulations, the vast majority (90%+) of the paper in these cups is brand new virgin paper which is another issue entirely. Often the disposable cups we use have been laminated with a plastic resin (polethylene) in order to insulate and seal the cups, preventing recycling and ensuring that every single laminated paper cup ends up in landfill. As the cups begin to decompose, they release methane, a greenhouse gas with 23 times the heat trapping power of carbon dioxide. So do your bit - grab yourself a mug and make a stand against wasteful paper cups.
