    It makes sense to go reusable

    150 million tonnes of plastic waste is floating in our oceans. Consumers want change. At least 80 % of them are critical of single-use plastics. Politicians are responding and restricting their use more and more. A ban on single-use plastic items like straws, dishes, cutlery and cotton buds will come into force in the EU from 2021.

    If you are looking for an alternative to disposable dishware and bamboo cups containing melamine then choose reusable dishware made from durable hard plastic or simply good, old fashioned porcelain coffee cups. Combine reusable dishware with smart warewashing technology by MEIKO for an environmentally sustainable solution that makes financial sense. These HoReCa entrepreneurs think so, too:

    „Coffee to go in a plastic cup is a No-Go ”

    Michael Andresen, Founder and owner of cup&more - Andresen Mehrweglogistik, Northern Germany

    „We want to extend the life cycle of cups and help our customers achieve their sustainability goals, but we also want to help our customers' customers achieve their sustainability goals.“

    Mirza van Meerwijk, Co-founder and co-owner of CapStack, Netherlands
