One of the lesser known reasons to switch from single use plastics, and indeed choosing a local supplier, is to help reduce our carbon footprint. Choosing Harfield’s range of reusable and 100% recyclable polycarbonate tableware will help you reduce your carbon footprint for tableware.
Plastics are in the news every day. Discarded plastic straws, stirrers, bags, bottles and much more are littering our oceans and our environment. Disposable plastics are due to be banned following EU legislation and indeed the UK government is also looking at bans or incentives to move away from disposable plastics.
In the UK we get through 2.5 billion disposable coffee cups a year. The majority of these cups are never recycled. They are sent to landfill and the unrecyclable plastic is ending up in the oceans. Now things are changing and more and more people are starting to use reusable cups to help save the planet.
