In partnership with Plastic Free Sheffield

In the UK we use 7 million disposable coffee cups every day – that’s 2.5 billion every year, with only 1% recycled. Around 100+ million plastic cups are used every year at UK festivals and live events, and most of these are incinerated or sent to landfill.

What’s the solution? Reusables!

For every 1 million reusable event cups in regular use, 1000 tonnes of C02e emissions and 300 tonnes of waste could be avoided.

Since May 2022, Plastic Free Sheffield Central have been investigating the possibilities of reusable pint and coffee cups. Come along and find out what we've been up to and where we are in our journey to tackle plastic pollution and plastic waste. This is Sheffield's Reusable Revolution.
