We all love a takeaway coffee but there’s lots in the news about the damage that takeaway coffee cups are doing to the environment – there are literally millions of them to dispose of every single day.

How can you make a difference? Buy your own coffee cup!

Mine has come of age this year – it’s 21 years young, and has been all around the country, whilst being filled with lovely hot teas & coffees – a complete godsend.

It’s probably saved me a fortune too, who needs Costa Fortune Coffee or Star Loads of Bucks? And if you do go visit one of those establishments make sure you take your BYO cup to do your bit.

Whilst I’m here talking about coffee… Where is your favourite local independent coffee shop? It’s always good to get some tips for when I’m out and about.
