Coffee cups

Stop coffee cup waste

Disposable paper coffee cupsn

Up to 2.5 billion paper coffee cups are thrown away every year. Friends of the Earth want Environment Secretary Andrea Leadsom to back new rules to end coffee cup waste.

While some cafes promote re-usable and recyclable cups, action is needed to make all the big coffee chains end the waste.

In the UK less than 1 in 400 of coffee-cups are recycled. Some of the cups can’t be recycled.
