Biodegradable or compostable packaging
Some single use coffee cups, cutlery and take-away packing are made from biodegradable or compostable materials and usually made from plant-based materials. These types of packaging may not always be the best option.
Use refillable cups and containers
Coffee cups can be used as mini flowerpots or for crafts and paints
Recycle - in your household recycling bin
