The ‘war on plastic’ has come to a halt with the proposed 25p levy on disposable coffee cups being rejected by the government. Contrary to popular belief, only 1 in 400 cups are actually recycled! Two and a half billion cups are thrown away as litter every year – that’s around 5,000 per minute.
Major coffee retailers like Starbucks and Pret have launched their own campaigns to tackle the growing issue of plastic & paper waste. Whilst Starbucks are trialling a three-month 5p charge on disposable cups, Costa and many other chains are offering discounts for those using reusable cups.
Where can I get a discount?
We’ll refresh this list for you if & when there are any updates

It doesn’t end there! Many of your local coffee shops are likely to be offering a discount as well, there’s no harm in asking.
