NAIROBI, KE: JAVA HOUSE STOP USING SINGLE-USE PLASTIC

We urge Java House to phase out single-use plastic packaging by investing in biodegradable or reusable alternatives.

ABANDON THE FOLLOWING SINGLE-USE PLASTIC ITEMS FROM YOUR STORE(S):

• Plastic straws
• Plastic and other unrecyclable cups used for juices
• Plastic lids
• Plastic-bottled drinks

Why is this important?

On the surface, Java House seems very progressive in their efforts to be environmentally friendly, however, we have noted a few more items that you need to let go of to make a genuine impact.

For far too long, big corporations have forced plastic packaging into our lives when we buy their products. We have been told that recycling and better waste management are the answers. But, we know that over 90% of plastic has not been recycled.

It’s time for corporations to move away from single-use plastic.

WE ASK YOU TO CUT YOUR USAGE TO STOP THE DEMAND FOR THESE ITEMS!

The more that businesses move toward biodegradable or reusable alternatives, the cheaper they will become, and the less plastic makes its way into the environment.
