Innovation: Coffee cup composting solution
PACKAGING company BioPak has joined with Perth cafes to launch a coffee cup composting service, with a goal to divert food scraps and food service packaging from landfills.
Under the service, customers can use collection bins placed at their local cafes or workplaces to dispose of used coffee cups or BioPak compostable takeaway food packaging.
Collected weekly, the bins will be sent to commercial facilities to be composted.
Eight million tonnes of organic waste to landfill
BioPak founder Richard Fine said Australians send more than eight million tonnes of organic waste to landfill every year, including 1.5 million tonnes of food waste.
“The problem with this is that when food waste decomposes in landfills, it releases methane, which is a greenhouse gas 80 times more potent than carbon dioxide, resulting in enormous damage to our environment” Mr Fine said.
BioPak is a leader in the innovation and production of environmentally-sustainable packaging.
