What is the Conscious Cup Campaign?

Globally it is estimated that 500 billion disposable cups are discarded to landfill or incineration every year. That’s one million cups a minute, every hour of every day of every year. These cups are virtually impossible to recycle due to the combination of plastic and paper in their design, and in Ireland we estimate that we dispose of over 22,000 of these non-recyclable cups every hour.

why reusable cups?

Who are we?

The Conscious Cup Campaign, was started in late 2016 by a group of concerned individuals who, inspired by similar initiatives of cafes and citizens around the world, are aiming to reduce and eventually eliminate single use cups in Ireland.

The campaign is funded by the Regional Waste Management Offices and supported by VOICE.

encourage individuals to switch to reusable cup

What are our Goals?

The campaign hopes to decrease the use of single use cups, by encouraging cafes and other outlets to incentivise, through rewarding, customers who bring their own.

We hope this small change in behaviour will help to influence and start consumers and cafes on their journey towards responsible consumption.
