Corporations that sell milk tea or coffee such as 1-点点and Luckin Coffee should reduce the amount of packaging used in their products and turn to plant based alternatives such as paper, twine, or cotton to replace plastic. Since materials derived from plant matter are easily farmable, quickly degradable, and are also useful as compost or fuel, paper, twine, and cotton beat plastic in the long run in both productivity and environmental friendliness.

出售奶茶或咖啡(例如1-点点和Luckin Coffee)的公司应减少其产品中使用的包装数量,并转而使用基于植物的替代品(例如纸,麻线或棉花)来代替塑料。 由于源自植物的材料易于耕种,可以快速降解,并且还可用作堆肥或燃料,因此从长远来看,无论从生产率还是环境友好角度来看,纸张,麻线和棉花都可以击败塑料。

Why is this important?

This experience is nearly universal: a package arrives at the front door and a buyer goes retrieve it. Opening the cardboard box, taking out the foam boards, bubble wrap, and plastic sheets, ripping open the shrink-wrap are all steps one must take to open an average package to reveal the product. By the same caliber, drinks such as milk tea are usually placed inside large plastic bags that serve no purpose other than being a temporary container. This means that purchasing a simple product weighing in at only a few grams, produces about a kilogram of plastic and foam that become potential pollutants for the environment. The producer wastes materials and money on extra packaging, and on top of all that, the process of disposing of such excessive packaging is certainly not an enjoyable process, and wastes time and effort on the consumer’s side as well.

Join us in the effort to reduce plastic waste in the environment, help improve the productivity of firms, and reduce consumer inconvenience. After all, how can we clean the oceans if more plastic flows in afterwards? We hope that major companies selling beverages such as milk tea and coffee to the masses can see, and hopefully change their production methods for the benefit of our society as a whole.
