Did you know Australians use 1 billion disposable coffee cups each year? Coffee cups are estimated to be the second-largest contributor to litter waste after plastic bottles. Our takeaway coffee cups, which look like they are made of paper, are actually covered in a thin layer of plastic, which takes 30 years for a single cup to break down. It’s so important that we start curbing our taste for quick and disposable options, to reduce pressure on landfills and protect our oceans.   Here are some tips to reduce your waste (without giving up your coffee ritual!)

  1. Consider drinking coffee at a café rather than going for the plastic takeaway option.
  2. Get a reuseable cup.
  3. If you do get a takeaway coffee, refuse a lid.

  The DC team is aiming to reduce our landfill waste through the use of DC branded re-usable cups from KeepCup for our team and guests.
