Did you know that we discard over 22,000 single use cups in Ireland every hour? 528,000 every day equating to 200 million a year.
Single use cups, no matter whether they are biodegradable or compostable, still require vast amounts of natural resources to manufacture, which all negatively impact our environment.
When you #ChoosetoReuse you are taking positive climate action, one sip at a time.
To help you make the change, Carlow and Kilkenny County Councils are hosting a free online webinar with the Conscious Cup Campaign on Thursday 30th September at 7pm. The webinar will be led by Sorcha Kavanagh, coordinator of the Conscious Cup Campaign .
The webinar is opened to any individual, group or business and aims to increase awareness about why “Reuse” is so important, how reducing our waste protects our finite resources and in turn our planet.
The campaign encourage cafes to reward conscious consumers for carrying their own cup through a financial incentive and all participating outlets are promoted locally and on the National Conscious Cup Website.
Sorcha will demonstrate how simple it is for any business to get involved and in the campaign and how we in our communities can encourage this positive climate action.
