On the go
The UK uses 2.5 billion disposable coffee cups every year, and only 1 in 400 of these can be recycled. If you enjoy hot drinks on-the-go, it’s time to invest in a reusable keep cup. Check out different cups available to buy and discounts that are offered for using your own cup.
The bag charge resulted in a drop of 85% plastic bag use - let’s get that to 100%! Leave your reusable bags in your car, handbag or by the door so you always remember to use them.
Making packed lunches for you or the whole family can not only help cut down the amount of waste you create, but it is often much healthier and cheaper than buying food on-the-go.
Sporks, chopsticks, or just normal knives and forks - there are lots of different reusable cutlery choices to choose from. If you are planning on eating on the go, make sure you have a set ready to pop in your bag or pocket.
Straws suck! Remind restaurants and bars that you don’t want them in your drink when you place your order. There are plenty of reusable versions available made of metal, silicon, bamboo, hard plastic or even glass, for you to slip into your bag before heading out.
