Espresso, cappuccino, americano with an extra shot, or a large soy latte. Whatever you like to drink on the go, sip it from a reusable travel coffee mug.
There’s nothing wrong with enjoying your favourite hot or cold beverages while out and about. But, the environmental price of this disposable coffee cup culture is way too high.
Many disposable coffee mugs are made from Styrofoam, a type of plastic which never breaks down entirely. Instead, it stays for thousands of years polluting the earth with toxic chemicals and affecting sea life. Single-use paper cups cause pollution too because they have a plastic liner. That’s what stops a paper mug from falling apart and leaking coffee onto your shoes. Biodegradable coffee mugs an improvement on Styrofoam and plastic-lined disposable coffee mugs, but they still require specific conditions (i.e. an industrial facility) to biodegrade fully.
Waste management and recycling systems simply can’t keep up with the daily flow of disposable coffee mugs, so the majority end up in oceans, rivers, and other waterways.
Coffee drinkers aren’t the only people responsible for disposable coffee mug pollution. The same problem applies to any hot or cold drink that comes in a disposable mug. That includes hot teas, iced teas, milkshakes, freshly blended fruit juices, and winter hot chocolate.
