No excuse for single use coffee cups

1Nov

Reusable coffee cups with Biomaster antimicrobial technology are helping raise awareness about single use plastics and raise money for a city centre charity.

I Love Manchester teamed up with local independent coffee shops to create the #PlasticFreeFriday campaign and raise awareness of issues surrounding single-use plastic and raised over £2K for the We Love MCR Charity.

Coffee cups are one of a number of single-use plastics that are causing huge damage to the environment. 

Manchester alone uses over 350,000 disposable coffee cups every day and most end up in landfill or incineration. 

By using a reusable cup, you can make your city just a little bit greener.

Unlike ordinary reusable coffee cups, Biomaster protected antimicrobial cups inhibit the growth of dangerous bacteria.

Biomaster protects surfaces 24/7 for the useful lifetime of the cup.

Corin Bell, lead at Plastic Free Greater Manchester said: "Going reusable is by far the most sustainable move for take-away hot drinks.
