The strategy behind the launch
As essential terms in the environmental terminology, sustainability and industrial ecology refer to critical aspects for reducing wastes and pollution in production. The consumer market is growing, and at the same time, companies are starting to focus not only on economic factors but also on social responsibilities and eco-efficient practices. Keeping eyes on all these factors, Tea Time Group has taken a great initiative to deal with the current scenarios of environmental issues by launching 100% biodegradable paper cups.
Standard paper cups are difficult to recycle and are usually disposed of in landfills as they have a Polyethylene (PE) lining that can only be recycled by very few recycling facilities around the country. As opposed to many other poly-cups, the biodegradable cups released by the company are not only safe and hygienic but can also be composted.
