resuable coffee cups

Woodfarm Reusable Coffee Cups are here!

It is estimated that the UK will get through 4 billion disposable cups in the next year. Isn’t it time we all started enjoying our latte in Reusable Coffee Cups?

Woodfarm reusable coffee cupsDisposable cups have become a global environmental situation and we have decided at Woodfarm to do our little bit to help. If we all start using reusable coffee cups, shopping bags and drink bottles and make a daily difference, it’ll soon mount up.

So in our efforts to do our bit we have had hundreds of high quality personalised mugs designed, to give away to our guests in our cottages and barges so they in turn can stop using disposables. We are not charging for them, they are free to our guests. So everyone can have their own Woodfarm travel mug.

In January 2018 MPs on the environmental audit committee called for a 25p ‘latte levy’ to be charged on top of the price of a hot drink, amid growing worries about the overuse and waste of 2.5bn disposable coffee cups every year historically.

Woodfarm Barns & Barges reusable coffee cupsAccording to an article in The Guardian, “disposable cups cannot be recycled by normal systems because they are made from cardboard with a tightly bonded polyethylene liner, which is difficult to remove. As a result, just one in 400 cups are recycled – less than 0.25%. Half a million coffee cups are littered each day in the UK”. Most disposable cups can’t be recycled but Reusable Coffee Cups can be!

Disposable cups are with you for a few minutes and then up to 50 years in landfill. You should be able to use Reusable Coffee Cups for 2 or 3 years then re-cycle them.

We’ve all seen so many news stories and documentaries now of tons and tons of single use plastic washing up on beaches around the world, destroying our natural environment, as well as the horrific effect it’s having on wildlife.

So please do your bit and pick one up from anywhere as soon as you can and stop using disposables. If you’d like a Woodfarm personalised mug then contact us and we can send you one for the cost price, plus p&p if you’re not staying here. We’ll just charge a fiver to cover the cost.
