Reusable Coffee Cup – Do you buy a takeaway coffee most days, and want to cut down on your waste, try one of these. In the past I would collect all my used paper coffee cups at work and take them home to recycle, until a friend suggested I buy a coffee cup that I can keep and use over & over again.
Below is a picture of the one I use, it costs around $12, comes in three sizes and works very well.
