Two thirds of consumers now own a reusable coffee cup – but just one in six remembers to use it every time they buy a hot drink, a poll suggests.
Its more than likely you are buying more than four takeaway coffees yourself a week. Some of you will have a reuseable cup, however the survey says that mostly you will forget and leave them home. Another reason cited is that your’e too afraid or feel uncomfortable asking a barista to wash out or refill them.
At mmm! Coffee Towers we have always washed out and refilled customers cups without even asking them, we think its a part of what we do to give back a freshly cleaned and filled cup with a hot brew.
In fact we actively encourage customers to use their own mug or cup and equally they do ask if we can at our events.If everyone did this it is estimated that we could cut the use of paper cups by 150 million cups each year. Currently in the UK 3 Billion takeaway cups are used annually.
Huey Morgan from the Fun Lovin Criminals said getting behind a campaign he’s involved with: “Helping rid the planet of unnecessary plastic and single use coffee cups is something I feel really strongly about. My kids are always talking about it, so I was very inspired to get involved.”.
At mmm! Coffee Towers we urge you to join us and bring your own refillable cups to events you see us at.

At suspended coffees we restore faith in humanity by highlighting the simple acts of kindness happening all around us, and encouraging others to do the same.
Kindness can come in many forms including the purchase of a suspended coffee, which is the very idea that inspired this world movement. A suspended coffee is the advance purchase of a cup of coffee for someone who needs it, no matter why.
