believes in a collaborative system with the aim to bring value to coffee drinkers, coffee shops and the environment & has a positive environmental impact in the following areas:
BETTER AIR QUALITY
By using reusable Ayswap cup, we will reduce the number of coffee cups that need to be taken to one of three special facilities in the UK to be recycled. This means fewer carbon emissions from trucks in the air during the transport.
It takes around 200 litres of water, that is more than 50 gallons to make one cappuccino (other things in your cappuccino that use water in their production- lid, cup and sleeve, sugar, milk, coffee). Now, think about every person in London only that drinks cappuccino every morning. This is quite big stress on the Earth’s water supply. Ayswap has the potential to reduce this and save the oceans.
SAVE ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENT
Ayswap is reducing a problematic plastic waste which currently needs to be recycled and take hundreds of years to break down. Additionally, many paper cups are made from virgin paper pulp, meaning trees must be felled to produce a product that only ends up being used for the length of time it takes to drink your cappuccino.
IMPROVE NATURAL HABITAT OF ANIMALS
A gradual breakdown of plastics results in tiny microplastics that can be ingested by animals. in addition, chemicals that are released during this breakdown are toxic to various creatures, including us. ayswap is also reducing the carbon footprint of coffee cup manufacturing and distribution for single-use coffee cups.
To conclude, “If all coffee drinkers in the UK switched to a reusable cup, they would save enough energy to power more than 37,000 three-bedroom homes for 1 year” (P. Manning, 2018)
