Recycle Your Cups


Did you know that paper cups are recyclable in South Africa? A paper cup is a disposable cup made out of paper and often lined or coated with a thin layer of polyethylene (PE)which is the plastic or wax that prevents liquid from leaking out or soaking through the paper.


In a world filled with convenience, paper cups have become indispensable companions to our daily lives. Whether you’re sipping your morning coffee on the way to work or enjoying a cold beverage during a picnic, these humble containers are there to make life a little easier. But have you ever wondered about the journey of a paper cup, from its inception to its disposal? Are the paper cup you are using eco-friendly?
