Disposable Coffee Cups
It is believed that Australians throw away around 1 billion disposable coffee cups each year, with 90 percent of disposable coffee cups end up in landfill.
While many look like they’re made of paper, they contain plastic linings that don’t biodegrade.
Disposable coffee cups are estimated to be the second largest contributor to litter waste after plastic bottles.
With Australians’ growing love of coffee, without action the problem could become even worse.
