I’ve yet, and can’t imagine ever being one for running about the streets with a cuppa tea. But I do like to sit in a have one, and when I do, I like a real cup!
Not just because of plastic pollution, but because drinking out of a ‘paper’ cup sipping through a plastic lid, reminds me of, well … kids parties!
This visit to a small cafe I’d luckily just popped in a charity shop and picked up this cool mug, otherwise it was only disposables. They offered a discount if you BYO (bring your own) but didn’t supply any? What would I have done having not gone to the charity shop? I would have gone somewhere else. There’s always somewhere else, and there’s always real cups to be found.
For take away though, it was great they offer a discount if you BYO cup
Plastic pollution from coffee cups is through the roof. You only have to be up and about in a busy place early in the morning to see it in full force, everyone is walking about with a cup, and where do they go? Landfill hopefully … The cups are lined with plastic – hence they don’t leak – and the lids are often not the right colour for recycling. Or the right number. Or go in the right bin! There’s a lot of factors to consider …
So remember to bring your own cup. If they don’t offer a discount, ask for one! Or better still, why not sit in and enjoy a five-minute break and a cuppa tea, in a real cup!
