Commuting sustainably with a reusable coffee cup

Commuting sustainably? Take our great taste with you

Train, bus, cycle, or skateboard – we’re all doing our bit to drive down our emissions on the way to work. But have you considered your lowly coffee cup in the whole environmental mix? We’d all like to use fewer disposable cups in our daily lives – so here’s a couple of suggestions to help you cut down and use more sustainable coffee cups.

On your way into work, a simple solution to sustainable commuting is to swap your takeaway cup for a delicious flask of homemade NESCAFÉ. This way, there’s less waste and nothing to recycle (except our recyclable packaging). Plus, if you do this for just a few days a week, you may find yourself saving a little extra cash into the bargain!

Once you’re at work, a great way of cutting down on plastic cups is to take a mug in with you to use whenever you want a cup of coffee. Tell your colleagues what you’re doing and spread the word – sustainability, like NESCAFÉ, is even better when it’s shared.

The great taste of NESCAFÉ has been supporting our busy working day for decades – but if we can do it with less plastic waste, then we’ll all be helping towards the good of the environment, too.

  • Radical tree renovation!

    Sometimes the advice our experts give looks pretty severe. But African growers trust us with their livelihoods, and extreme techniques pay off with bigger crops. 

  • We’re spicing up coffee farming!

    Sometimes we advise our farmers to plant crops other than coffee! Like avocados, chillis and nuts. Agricultural biodiversity is good for the land, and it’s good for our partner farmers.

  • Enjoy more at 80ºC

    Did you know that 100% NESCAFÉ flavour doesn’t need 100ºC boiling water? And if you use less heat, you’ll save a whole lot of energy too.
