Did you know?
22,000 coffee cups are disposed of in Ireland every hour, that is 528,000 every day or 200 million a year.
Single use coffee cups are not on Recycling List Ireland and cannot be put in the Recycling Bin.
Reusable cups cut down on the overproduction of some of the different plastics used to make single-use drinkware. These include polypropylene, polystyrene (Styrofoam), polyethylene (PET), its recycled materials equivalent rPET, etc.
