Starbucks U.K. will give customers a discount if they bring their own cup. It wants to cut down on trash and recycle more. Starbucks U.K. said: Reusable cups are a key part of our overall waste reduction strategy." Customers who bring their own cup will not get a discount on the cheaper filter coffee.

Paper cups have been in the news a lot. Around seven million cups are thrown away every day. Some cafes lie about how many cups they recycle. Customers might think a cafe is environmentally friendly, but it is not. Fewer than one in 400 paper cups at cafes are recycled. A coffee drinker said: "I am disappointed that cafes recycle so little."
