The Problem

Issues at hand

Single-use plastic containers pollute the environment. Their use will continue to harm sea life, impair food safety, contaminate water supplies, impact coastal tourism, and contribute to climate change. While recycling can help reduce the global burden, only a small percentage of waste is recycled, and plastic is still being made, used, disposed of and discarded at alarming levels, leaving microplastics to contaminate humans, animals, and the environment. Increasingly nations have been banning the use of plastics in all forms, and major global corporations are taking immediate action to find and use alternative products and materials in their product offerings.

Coated Paper Crisis

Polyethylene Coated Paper

Polyethylene (LDPE) is a common plastic material for coating everyday items like paper cups, plates, food containers, and various paper packaging. Although it serves a purpose by acting as a barrier to liquids, grease, and moisture, it's also environmentally harmful. Unfortunately, products coated with polyethylene are neither biodegradable nor easily recyclable.

It's worth noting that many of these items are marketed with labels such as "made from 100% recycled paper," which can be misleading because such coated products are not economically viable for recycling.

LDPE coated products are typically coated during the manufacturing process, and while it has its merits, it poses significant challenges to our environment. We need to be more mindful of the materials we use and their impact on our planet.

Did you know...the recycle symbol doesn't mean it can be recycled by your waste processor?

One of the primary reasons why so much plastic packaging ends up in incinerators, landfills, and our oceans is simply because it's not designed with recycling in mind.

While some plastic-coated paper can be separated for recycling, the process is often expensive and complex, making it impractical in many cases. Moreover, paper coated with plastic cannot be composted. As a result, most of these products end up being incinerated or sent to landfills, rather than finding a second life through recycling.

For example, think about your typical "paper" coffee cups and plates – they often contain a thin plastic layer (polyethylene) to prevent leaks. Unfortunately, this means that those beloved takeaway coffee cups are not biodegradable or recyclable. We simply need more eco-friendly alternatives to reduce our environmental footprint.



Every year, a whopping 1 trillion cups, boxes, and containers that can't be recycled and harm our environment find their way into landfills. To put it into perspective, the number of K-cups alone currently in landfills could encircle our planet 10 times! It is even more surprising that the energy needed to produce these disposable products could power 53,000 homes for an entire year!

Environmental experts tell us that only around 9% of plastic waste generated in the U.S. is recycled, with the majority ending up in landfills, oceans, and incinerators – all of which contribute to the greenhouse effect.

It is important to note that open-air landfills surround many major urban areas. By 2030, an estimated 70% of the world's population will call urban areas home. We must remember that our actions today have a significant impact on the future of our planet.
