PAPER CUPS – FRIENDLY TO THE ENVIRONMENT
It is proven that the thin polycoating on paper cups will break down into inert pieces of dust in the presence of oxygen in just three weeks.
This is in stark contrast to other cups currently on market which are not recyclable.
The millions of Australians who turn out each year to “Clean up Australia ” will attest that foam and polystyrene cups are a pest that clog up our waterways and remain in our rivers and canals virtually indefinitely.
The Sydney Olympic Games Organising Committee opted for paper cups for the 2000 Sydney Games due to their superior recycling properties and biodegradability in preference over polystyrene and foam.
