Can bioplastics be considered a “green” solution?

Plastic simply doesn’t digest and doesn’t mix well with nature. By 2050, there will even be more plastic than fish in our oceans around the world. As a result, the demand for bioplastics has increased dramatically over the last few years, but there still tends to be a lot of confusion about the terms used in environmental claims. Not all bioplastics are indeed biodegradable or compostable! And, not all biodegradable plastics are bio-based!

In this post, we explain the terms commonly used and also give some tips and tricks for how we as individuals can help!

Are Your Take Away Coffee Cups Recyclable?

Unfortunately, the answer is no. We’ve learnt that paper cups are not recyclable, and approximately four billion paper cups end up in landfills every year. The mix of paper and plastic in a take away cup cannot be recycled together. As a result, most of those paper cups eventually end up in a landfill instead.

Therefore, in the UK, they are considering to implement what they have called the “latte levy”  a tax on all disposable coffee cups, that would raise the price of coffee.

Do you want to know more about the “latte levy” or the current effect the take away cups are having on our environment? Check out the full article here!
