|Compost Coffee Cup|
With the accelerated pace of modern life, many people stay up has become a common problem, as most people refreshing coffee mate, but with the expansion of the coffee market rapidly, it also brings a lot of environmental disputes, Planglow company to solve the impact on the environment caused by the coffee cup controversy, launched a series of compostable coffee cup.
According to RachaelSawtell, the company's marketing director, Planglow, which can be used for compostable packaging and labeling, the double layered coffee cup can not only extend the holding time of coffee, but also be made entirely of plant based materials. Its lining has been EN13432 certified (product compostable certification). As a result, unlike the PE lining, the cup can be recycled with food residue and is a fully compostable solution.
Sawtell said: "one of BBC's headlines, 'Hugh' sWasteonWaste, has reported that most coffee cups are not suitable for recycling because the plastic lining of a coffee cup is difficult to remove. But we Planglow can provide an environmentally friendly alternative. All of our solutions are not biological cup containing petroleum based materials, but is made from 100% plant based materials so, even if we use the liner and cover in the compost environment can also break down, leaving no harmful residue."
In fact, most of the paper packaging is not suitable for recycling, because the food or beverage will penetrate into the paper packaging, resulting in contamination of recycled paper materials. The plastic lining or coating can protect the paper from oil or other substances. However, it is very difficult to remove the plastic lining from paper packaging.
"Therefore, we recommend that food suppliers consider the use of compostable products / packaging, which, like our products, can also reduce dependence on local government recycling systems.
