Pacific Coffee launches trio of plastic reduction measures

Straws made out of sugar cane will be rolled out in all their stores this year.

Hong Kong cafe chain Pacific Coffee is launching three new plastic reduction measures this year.

In the first quarter of 2019, the company's plastic stirrers with be replaced with new wooden ones. Sugar cane straws, which are already being trialed at select coffeehouses, will be launched in all stores this year.

Pacific Coffee will also introduce a new paper cup and cup lid with BDP (breakdown plastic) organic additive.

"BDP is added to the production process of paper cups, making it a degradable plastic and allowing it to be completely and naturally biodegraded into water, carbon dioxide and methane within 1-5 years," Pacific Coffee explained in their announcement.

The new paper cup and lid are also being tested in select stores before its launch across the board in 2019.
