#PlasticFreeMerton Weekly Challenge
"Like many others, I was shocked to learn that 2.5 billion coffee cups are used and thrown away each year in the UK alone.
My week-long challenge to do something about this may be complete but I will definitely continue to carry my reusable mug with me & will be supporting local businesses offering great incentives to encourage others to do the same. Who could refuse a less than £2 latte?!
I'll no longer be using the 'it's an effort to carry my flask around all day' excuse - as I've done it, and it really wasn't such a hardship! It also gave me a good reason to empty my bag of less essential items buried at the bottom - prioritising my #PlasticFreeMerton duties!"
