Over a third of British adults drink at least one takeaway coffee each day, according to research conducted by Total Merchandise.
The vox-pop-style poll, conducted across our Instagram and Twitter accounts, also found close to two-thirds (62%) of the British adults surveyed would willingly enjoy their coffee-to-go in a reusable cup each morning, rather than a throw-away paper cup handed out by a coffee shop.
When asked to guess how many disposable coffee cups are discarded in the UK each year, 60% of the respondents picked the correct answer, with 2.5bn disposable cups ending up on landfill sites around the country each year. The remainder thought that answer was 150 million – which sadly, is just a fraction of the number that are cast aside on an annual basis.
Speaking about the research, John Mackenzie, Head of Digital Marketing at Total Merchandise, comments: "The findings certainly bear out our experience of these types of cups becoming increasingly popular. As well as providing great value, an order of these also show you’re doing your bit for the planet - not to mention the fact we have some really stylish designs to choose from!"
