Ban single-use plastics
We believe a complete ban on disposable, single-use plastics, including biodegradable and compostable alternatives to traditional plastics, is a critical step towards a more sustainable future.
Include compostable/ biodegradable plastics in plastics ban
Until reliance on plastics is fully eliminated, however, it is important that businesses and municipalities offer the most comprehensive recycling
programs possible. Considering the hazardous chemicals and environmental persistence, it is our recommendation that biodegradable and compostable
plastics be processed through the same recycling flow as traditional plastics.
When in doubt, refuse. Enjoy your cup of coffee in your own cup, or better yet, in- house. Remind businesses that biodegradable plastics might not be the best response to our global plastics crisis.
