The billions of throwaway coffee cups thrown away each year globally should be replaced with reusable ones because they are a waste of resources, harm forests and climate, and create mountains of waste.

58 billion paper cups are thrown away globally each year!

32 million trees are cut down to produce paper cups.

It takes 100 billion litres of water to produce paper cups.

Paper cups emit as much greenhouse gas as half a million cars.
