This week on Ours to Protect we take a look at Killarney’s plan to become the first town in Ireland to ban single-use coffee cups. 

From the 31st of July independent local coffee shops and hotels in the town will only offer takeaway tea and coffee in reusable cups.

Sari Houlihan reports from Killarney where at least 1 million single use coffee cups are sold every year and talks to Ciara Tracey of the Ross and Killarney Park Hotels explains how the Killarney Coffee Cup Project came about.
