How To Be An Environmentally Friendly Coffee Drinker

For some people, coffee is just another hot beverage. For others, it’s a way of life. If you are in the latter group, you probably can’t go a day without having at least one cup. However, with all that coffee consumption comes a lot of waste and bad effects on the environment. Luckily, there are some easy ways to continue enjoying your liquid magic responsibility.

Reusable Mug

If you are someone who needs coffee by your side at all times, invest in a reusable mug. You can either brew it at home or even go to your favorite cafe and have them fill it up for you all without wasting those disposable cups.


If you do decide to go to a cafe and get your brew from there, use a liquid sugar like simple syrup or honey instead of packets of sugar. That means there will be less waste from the packet but you’ll still get a punch of sweetness!


Wooden and plastic stirrers are another wasteful coffee habit and fill out landfills more. Even shops that use dried pasta instead are still throwing them away and creating trash. Instead, opt for a metal spoon which can be reused meaning less waste!
