[China Packaging News] Starbucks offered a reward of 10million for collecting recyclable paper cups, which is not the first time it has done so

Starbucks uses almost 6billion coffee cups every year, which are difficult to recycle and consume wood. It takes about 20 years to degrade this paper cup naturally

Starbucks once again declared war on the coffee cup

recently, Starbucks and an investment institution called "closed civil building engineering indoor environmental pollution control code GB50325 (2) 001loop partners" jointly issued (5) new steps have been taken in the new material industry and a challenge competition has been launched to collect coffee cups that are more recyclable, with a bonus of up to $10million

while seeking solutions, Starbucks is also testing a paper cup lining made of plant materials. There are many categories. This test has been carried out for the 13th time to see whether it can prevent liquid leakage

Starbucks pays so much attention to coffee cups because the current coffee cup products are not environmentally friendly

although most coffee cups used now are made of cardboard, in order to maintain the temperature and prevent the cardboard from getting wet, the lining of the cup will be equipped with a layer of film, which is difficult to separate from the cardboard, making it difficult for the paper cup to be recycled with other waste paper. At the same time, 90% of the materials used to make Starbucks cups come from logs, and only 10% are recycled materials, resulting in a large waste of resources. Paper cups can only be recycled in cities with "appropriate infrastructure", such as Seattle, San Francisco, New York and Washington, D.C

according to CNN (American cable television), the total annual consumption of this kind of coffee cup, which is difficult to recycle and consumes wood, is about 600billion, of which Starbucks will use almost 6billion. The natural degradation of this paper cup takes about 20 years

the new round of environmental protection actions started in recent years has also made it a trend for enterprises to declare environmental protection

in February 2017, the European Union announced that it would take positive action on plastic products such as disposable straw, color plastic bottle, coffee cup, lid, disposable tableware, mixer and outer packaging, and planned to increase the current plastic recovery rate from 30% to 55% by 2030. This year, British Prime Minister Theresa may also said that she plans to remove all avoidable plastic waste within 25 years. This caused enterprises to give up disposable products

Costa, a coffee chain brand, announced at the beginning of this year that it would stop providing plastic straws and switch to non plastic products; McDonald's announced that by 2025, it would replace all product packaging with environmental protection packaging certified by third-party agencies, and provide environmental protection recycling boxes in all restaurants; Last month, Dunkin 'donuts, a doughnut and coffee chain, said it would phase out polystyrene foam cups this spring and completely get rid of foam cups by 2020

Starbucks, which collected 10million green cups, didn't wait. It opened in February 2018 and worked hard to provide customers with the best products and the most satisfactory services. It began a trial of charging for disposable coffee cups in more than 20 stores in London, with an amount of 5P (about 0.45 yuan). The trial lasted for three months, and the fees collected will be donated to the environmental protection agency hubbub

this is not the first time Starbucks has made a high-profile statement to transform its coffee cup. In 2008, Starbucks set a number of environmental protection goals, saying that 25% of the cups can be reused; In 2010, Starbucks promised to ensure that all cups can be reused or recycled by 2015, but these have not been achieved

Colin Chapman, Starbucks' vice president in charge of global social impact, attributed the reason to the slow development of environmental protection industry. "No one is satisfied with the relevant industrial progress so far," he said. "The progress is not fast enough."
