A town in Ireland recently became the first in the country to ban single use coffee cups which overflow from garbage bins. Prior to the ban, 23000 cups were thrown away in Killarney, on the west side of Ireland. Now with the ban, tonnes of waste are avoided each week.
Instead customers can bring their own cup or pay a refundable deposit for a reusable cup which they can return to receive their money back.
The success of the ban is thanks to the cooperation of all the businesses to ensure a consistent experience for customers.
Working together created value for their community, reduced waste and demonstrated the town’s leadership.
