Every Cup Matters

8000 of these cups hit the landfill every minute

So the hard hitting fact actually got me to think why aren't these cups recyclable what happens to them

people think its just cardboard with wax on them whereas its cardboard with polyethylene on them

which makes them single use, non-biodegradable, non-recyclable, hence the only use of them after we have our coffee is to end up in the dustbin and eventually end up in the landfill

what got me to pick up this issue and start my petition was essentially the need to address this problem

which is why I started my petition to be able to make restaurants and coffee outlets realize that these cups are not recyclable

they have already made a very positive move of addressing the issue of single use plastic

So its my request to all of you to start carrying your own cup

It is definitely going to have a positive impact on the environment
