No Throwaway Cups!
The first goal of our Global Paper Vision is to reduce paper consumption. Throwaway cups are an icon of wasteful paper use and many of our member organisations are campaigning together to eliminate them.

Our ‘Cupifesto’ calls on business leaders and politicians to stop encouraging a throwaway culture by ensuring all cups are reusable.
