Friends of the Earth Keep Cup - Reduced Rate This Week!
Posted by Claudia Tormey on December 11, 2018 at 03:00 PM
Our limited edition Friends of the Earth Keep Cups have been hugely popular since we launched them as part of the Sick of Plastic Campaign this time last year.
To celebrate one year of the campaign we've decided to offer them at a reduced rate for one week only in the lead up to Christmas.
Until now we have been exclusively gifting our Keep Cups to new monthly donors and those who give €100 or more.
But for the next week only, if you donate €50 or more to Friends of the Earth you will receive one of our Keep Cups in time for filling your Christmas stockings!
Why have our reusable cups been so popular?
Did you know that in Ireland we waste 20,000 single use coffee cups every hour? That adds up to 300 million a year! In comparison, reusable cups can be used time and time again for years.
The Sick of Plastic Campaign has been one of our most popular campaigns in terms of public engagement, which goes to show - people really are sick of plastic and really want to do their bit to tackle plastic waste.
Your reusable cup can convert coffee lovers into action takers!
Carrying a reusable cup sends a strong message to business about tackling waste. It's also a great conversation starter, your reusable cup can empower others to take action on waste.
Use your reusable coffee cup as a tool to inform people about the Waste Reduction Bill which is calling for a levy on single use coffee cups, a ban on single use plastics and to introduce a deposit return scheme for plastic bottles and aluminium cans.
This Christmas, give your loved one a tool for creating change!
Every person who donates €50 or more this week will not only get a reusable cup, they'll also enter a draw to win one of three copies of the Blue Planet 2 books!
Offer ends next Tuesday 18th December!
Together we will break free from plastic waste!
