Think like Killarney: Elevating Your Brand and Corporate Social Responsibility with Sustainable Coffee Cups

Killarney Coffee Cup Free

The town of Killarney is leading the way on social responsibility, introducing The Killarney Coffee Cup Project this summer, in which 25 local cafes and 22 hotels signed up to participate in a ban on single use coffee cups for 12 months. This is a game changer for sustainability in Ireland, coming in ahead of the Latte Levy, which has just come into play to increase the cost of drinks sold in disposable cups. This step towards a greener approach is becoming a popular trend in universities and institutions across Ireland.

Right now is a great time to jump on this trend, introducing reusable cups and bottles into your company’s range of promotional merchandise, spreading your brand reach and demonstrating your corporate social responsibility.

Reusable cups are one of our most popular promotional products, being both practical and desirable. Our range contains plenty of reusable options, including high end brands and cost effective branded cups, and we can help you to choose the best options to complement your business image and ethos.


Supporting the Latte Levy with reusable mugs

A 2022 EnvEcon report instrumental to the decision to impose a levy on single use disposable cups investigated the real environmental cost of these and found that ‘a ‘break-even’ point for efficiently produced and cleaned reusable coffee cups over single use disposable cups to be in the region of 10 to 20 uses.’

According to the same report, the levy on single use drinking cups was introduced to ‘represent a valuable and high-profile entry point for action to reduce consumption of single use products where viable, and to encourage uptake and adoption of reusable products and sustainable behaviours.’ In light of this, it seems that introducing the latte levy has been a very successful decision, financially incentivising more environmentally friendly behaviours which will then become habitual behaviours amongst the general population.
