Eco friendly coffee cups: A smart and simple way to protect the planet.
Here in Australia, we drink a lot of coffee, much of it in disposable plastic cups. This presents a problem: what happens to these coffee cups after we have used them?
Every year, Australians throw over 3 billion takeaway cups away. As these cups are not easy to recycle - and as many local authorities simply don't have the resources necessary to process this waste - most of these 3 billion will find their way to landfill sites. And there they stay. The materials used to make coffee cups do not biodegrade. This is great for holding hot liquids in a container for a long period of time, but not so good when it comes to breaking down after use. To put it frankly, disposable coffee cups are choking Australia's environment and eco systems.
So what is the answer? Reusable coffee cups. At Flora & Fauna, we are proud to provide one of Australia's biggest ranges of reusable coffee cups, covering many of the major brands. Read on to learn more, or browse our product pages and find what you need. Together, we can take steps towards a healthier, happier, more sustainable world.
