In the minute it takes you to watch this film, 5,000 coffee cups are thrown away in the UK - causing a huge waste problem. But there is a solution.
Most coffee cups aren't recycled, like most takeaway packaging, which goes to landfill or incineration. Why? Card + plastic = a recycling problem. Card contaminates plastic recycling, and plastic contaminates the card recycling. Food contaminates everything. Unless it's all compostable and can be recycled with food waste. Anyway, why use finite materials?
Compostable packaging is made from plants, not plastic; renewable plant-based materials have less embodied carbon than plastic. Compostable packaging is the only solution for zero waste in foodservice. Eco-friendly from start to finish, with Vegware's expert support all the way to zero waste.
