A group of us got together from the Zero Waste Ireland Facebook page to find positive solutions to reduce the amount of take-away coffee cups used and discarded each day. In Ireland, we are using well over 1/2 a billion cups each year, and they are not recyclable! Each take-away coffee cup has a thin plastic liner to keep the hot coffee from leaking. Additionally, there are the same number of lids in our rubbish. We are asking people to invest in a reusable travel mug to be used when they buy coffee on the go. Additionally, we are asking coffee shops to offer a discount to those customers who bring their own mug.We will use this money to develop and host our website and develop a marketing campaign.
