According to The Nature Conservancy, 16 billion cups are used for coffee every year, translating to over 6.5 million trees, 4 billion gallons of water, and the energy equivalent of powering 54,000 homes for a year.

Most paper coffee cups are non-recyclable due to their laminate, and end up in the landfill – but you can help change this! Start bringing a travel mug when you plan to purchase coffee – many coffee shops, such as Starbucks, even offer beverage discounts when you bring your own mug.

Take the pledge to save the planet while enjoying a beverage in your favorite reusable mug!
