Millions of people use disposable cups every day when drinking coffee, tea and juice on-the-go. Unfortunately this waste builds up over time and contributes to pollution and crowded landfills.
You can reduce your contribution to landfill waste by no longer using disposable take-away cups. The best way to avoid single-use disposable cups is to always carry reusable cups, mugs and/or bottles around in your bag and keep them in your car. This is also beneficial for health because it reduces your exposure to chemicals in disposable cups such as BPA and others that can leach into your beverage.
The Australian Organic Directory lists companies that offer a wide range of re-usable, eco-friendly cups and bottles, including double insulated stainless steel bottles and reusable glass cups.
