Sign the coffee cup petition

Dear Elizabeth
Dear Elizabeth

Did you know up to 2.5 billion coffee cups are chucked away every year? That’s a lot of forest going in the bin.

And while some cafes do their bit to promote re-usable and recyclable cups, action is needed to make all the big coffee chains put an end to the waste.

Please ask Environment Secretary Andrea Leadsom to back new rules to end coffee cup waste.

Sign the petition to end coffee cup waste.

Here’s another fact that shocked me - in the UK less than 1 in 400 of coffee-cups are recycled. Some cups can’t even be recycled.

Many of these blow around our streets, litter our beautiful countryside, or add to the huge volumes of waste swirling around our oceans. It should be down to the multiple-billion pound businesses to sort this unacceptable problem out.

New rules on plastic bags have already cut waste dramatically. Now is the time for new rules to end coffee cup waste too.

Sign the coffee cup petition to Andrea Leadsom today.

My favourite café already gives me a discount when I take in my own cup (or provides a recyclable one when I forget!). It’s time all coffee drinkers were rewarded for re-use. And cups that can’t be recycled must be banned completely.

Together we can reduce the waste of coffee-cups. We did it with plastic bags, and we can do it again.

Thank you for your support,
Rosie, Campaigner (and coffee drinker)
