The Problem

Issues at hand

Single-use plastic waste bottles, straws and food containers pollute the environment, 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 nation states 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 commonly used plastic material used to coat various products such as paper cups/plates, food containers, and paper packaging. It serves as a barrier to liquids, grease, and moisture. However, paper coated with polyethylene is niether bio-degradable nor easily recyclable.

These paper products are usually sold as disposable and single-use; some are even labeled as "made from 100% recycled paper"' which makes people think it can be easily be recycled. Still, many of these these products are coated during the manufacturing process with polyethylene to enhance the durability, functionality, and other desirable properties of the products, making paper recycling a challenge.

The recycle symbol doesn't mean it can be recycled by your waste processor

A major reason why so much plastic packaging ends up in incinerators, landfills, and oceans is because it's not designed for recycling.

Some plastic-coated paper can be separated for recycling, but it's often expensive and complicated to actually recycle these products. Paper coated with plastic aren’t suitable for composting either. Therefore, most times, such products are incinerated or put in the landfill rather than recycled. Despite this, many plastic-coated paper products are still put in recycling bins, including in the U.S.

Take, for instance most "paper" coffee cups and plates have a thin plastic layer (polyethylene) to hold liquids. This means takeaway coffee cups aren't recyclable or biodegradable.


1 trillion cups, boxes and containers that are non-recyclable and environmentally damaging end up in landfills every year. The number of K-cups alone in landfills currently could circle the planet 10 times. 53,000 homes could be powered annually by the energy needed to make these disposable products.

It's estimated that only about 9% of plastic waste generated in the U.S. is recycled and that the rest ends up in landfills, oceans, and incinerators, which contribute to greenhouse effect. Open-air landfills surround every major urban area. By the year 2030, 70% of the world’s population will live in urban areas.

Sustainable Solution

J&J Green Paper's unique compound is organic, bio-degradable, compostable, and 100% recyclable.
It can eliminate and replace the traditional coating used for food & beverage packaging, including all single and double-sided containers for hot and/or cold products during shipment to the end consumer. The raw material needed for its production is readily available worldwide and the process uses the same technology as the current polyethylene. Therefore, there is a seamless production process transfer with minimal supply chain disruption or friction.

J&J Green Paper

J&J Green Paper is at the forefront of an affordable coating process for the food & beverage industry.
While J&J Green Paper has focused initially on drinking cup problems, they have also addressed other environmental challenges revolving around paper, straws, ‘Styrofoam’  and even a laminate organic k-cup that is recyclable and bio-degradable. With your help, we can make it happen together. We rolled out in 2021. Look for our symbol anywhere that take-out food and beverages are ordered or produced. Let’s restore, through preservation, the cosmic balance and order of our planet’s nature.
