FCB compostable takeaway coffee cups

Takeaway coffee cups are a major source of litter and plastic pollution. What appears to be paper cups are a composite structure with an inner plastic lining thus cannot be recycled.

Any move away from this throwaway culture, a  throwaway culture encouraged by the corporate coffee chains, is to be welcomed, be it compostable cups, reusable cups for example keepcup or best of all options encouraging relax in a  specialty coffee shop with coffee served in glass or ceramic.

I am pleased to see FCB kiosk now using compostable cups.

But begs the question, what to do with the cup? Unless facilities to compost the cups, will go straight into the general waste stream.  As I was going to the market in North Street, I saved mine for the compost heap.
