Coffee cup campaign

Plastic Free Israel has launched a coffee cup campaign, aimed at reducing the number of disposable coffee cups used in Israel.

Single-use coffee cups are paper cups that are lined in polyethylene, a type of plastic, and cannot be recycled in Israel.

We want to motivate people to bring their own reusable mugs or coffee cups when they order their favorite cup to-go. We're partnering with coffee shops all over the country to provide a discounted price on your drink when you bring a reusable cup.

A list of participating coffee shops is below - a map is coming soon!

 

Bring your cup, get a discount, and help save the environment!

Coffee Cups, Israel & The environment

In a 2018 study by Galia Pasternak, cups make up 16% of the total single use plastic found on beaches in Israel.

Saving cups doesn't just save from cup pollution, but decreases factory production, which is another source of pollution. Reusing mugs saves: trees, water, energy, and money.

The average Israeli resident generates 1.7 kilograms of waste daily.

The overall financial cost of plastics to marine ecosystems is conservatively estimated to be US $13 billion a year.

As of January 2018, the Israeli government claimed that about 25% of total waste was recycled. Since then, at least one recycling facility has been closed and the number is likely to have gone down.

Compostable and biodegradable cups, unless properly composted, are likely to end up in landfills, where they will break down into methane, a greenhouse gas.

Where to find your new best friend

(a reusable coffee cup!)

We're working on building a list of all the places you can buy sturdy, reusable coffee cups in Israel. If you know of any retailers that we missed so far, let us know! If you're a retailer that wants to sell coffee cups, drop us a line and we'll send you some wholesale recommendations.

We have a few options listed for now - we recommend trying to buy local (from locations such as those listed below) as it supports the demand for these items in Israel. The more people asking retailers for reusable coffee cups, the more options we have for environmentally-friendly products in our own country - wouldn't that be great?!
