Research by BBC Experts have revealed that they think by 2050, the amount of plastic in the ocean will weigh more than the amount of fish in the ocean. At Printed Cup Company, we understand our corporate social responsibility and work hard to find ways to help end plastic pollution which is crippling the earth’s ecosystems.
We are always trying to find innovative ways to reduce waste and our carbon footprint. We have looked at our current way of packing paper cups into boxes which is by putting each sleeve of cups into individual clear plastic bags, using up to 20 sleeves per box, approx. 0.182 kg of plastic.
The new method for packing, which will benefit in reducing the use of plastic is by having only 1 large bag per box, which is approx. 0.062kg of plastic. That’s a massive reduction of 65% per box. With your help, in a month, we could reduce plastic by 242kg.
If that wasn’t enough, the bags can be utilised by putting the used cups back in and be sent for recycling. Please speak to your account manager for more information and let’s work together to save billions of paper cups from landfill.
