In Today's Project Diary Video I will share some additional information on the newly imposed coffee shop tax being dubbed as "The Latte Levy". I will also be sharing some helpful information on the dangers of plastic beverage mugs and how they affect your health.

We are led to believe a majority of "Paper Coffee Cups" are recycled but the truth is over 2.5 Billion cups are thrown away each year in the UK. This creates around 30,000 Tonnes of waste that could easily be recycled and reused. Unfortunately, it's uncommon to know that these cups are lined with PE plastic and would usually contaminate regular recycling resources.

The public is encouraged to purchase reusable cups and could be offered a small discount for doing so but are these cups safe?

BPA is a notorious chemical used in some plastic and is used in some water bottles and travel mugs!! Despite many countries trying to phase this chemical out, it's still widely used around the Globe.

There are over 80,000+ chemicals used to make many commerically available plastics and many are being found to cause extreme health problems including that to the endocrine system (shown above) This can cause anything including nurological issues such as behavioral problems, depression, anxiety - all the way to alzihmers. They can also disrupt the thryoid causing obescity, fertility and birth defects and even Brest, Testicular and prostate Cancer.

Thank you! :)

great post and video! this is an issue thats been bothering me a lot lately...especially as I've been travelling in Asia the last couple of months where there generally seems to be absolutely no care about this kind of thing. I hope the UK gets its act together soon, it seems so crazy that we don't have this figured out yet. Looking forward to the next video 😀

Thank you! I'm amazed at how far advanced other parts of the world such as Malaysia are compared to westerners. We need to stop being a throw away society

very nice video..
Nice post.I respect you very much because you contribute to steemit.I will do activities like you.I would like to extend the steemit..

Thank you :)

Welcome back! I almost unsubscribed because I was going through my follows list and you had been inactive for two months.

I had no idea they were lined with plastic! I thought it was wax. I guess that is what they used to use....

I'm glad you stuck in there. I'm still having health issues but I'll try to post when I can :)

Hello, and thank you. I am very keen at recycling and minimising waste as much as possible. I also remember watching one of your YouTube videos on making homemade fertiliser or pesticide and mentioning to never heat things up in plastic containers, although I have heard that before it wasn't til that video I never used plastic for cooking again.
I also had never heard of SteemIt until I watched your video explaining the platform. So you are the reason I'm starting my SteemIt quest. For that I thank you again. I hope your health is improving. I'm just about to watch your latest video with your grandad. Great thumb nail, brought a smile to my face.
Good luck on your channel, I'll be watching as always. Peace

You're very welcome! I'm so glad you find my information helpful and good luck on your Steemit quest. Take care :)

love this post. zero weste.
