A team of six students from Royal Roads University are working to raise awareness about single-use coffee cups as the final project of their degree. As part of their Recycle the Rim project, they’re planning to build a giant Tim Hortons cup out of hundreds of reclaimed Tim Horton’s cups to challenge the company’s current lack of recycling practices. But what’s even better than recycling? Refusing to take a single-use cup in the first place and reducing our environmental impact. Let’s hope Timmy Ho’s will respond with some environmentally positive changes. Check it out.
