Did you know that take-away coffee cups are lined with plastic and CANNOT be recycled? If we all switched to reusable we would divert 500 billion cups from landfill every year.

The best practice would be to carry your reusable coffee mug or insulated tumbler in your car. Most coffee shops will fill your own cup with coffee or specialty drinks. Remember to carry your reusable straws too!

And don't forget, reusable tumblers can be filled up with ice water before you leave the house. This will help save the use of a plastic water bottle.
