take away the coffee cups
Did you know take away coffee cups are non-recylable? Even the paper ones are coated with plastic - they all end up as landfill and the lids are always a number 6 or 8 plastic (the ones to avoid), so don't drink through the lids! Best of all, take your mug, or buy yourself a reusable cup - the KeepCup is made of recycled polypropylene (number 5 plastic - not so bad), but my favourites are the ceramic and silicon ones on ebay.
