3 July 2020
There are 2.5 billion paper coffee cups used every year in Britain. A staggering figure, but worsened by the fact that only one is every 400 is recycled, as the rest go to landfill. It would take 33,000 cars to produce the equivalent carbon footprint that a year’s worth of non-recycled coffee cups leave, despite growing efforts by major chains and independent coffee outlets to be more sustainable.
