Dutch ban on disposable cups - The Netherlands was set to ban disposable cups in January 2024 at offices, festivals, sports canteens, and catering establishments. Since the election, the status of the ban has been in limbo, but that doesn't mean you can't do your part. Here are some great alternatives: Plastic-free reusable coffee and tea cups, Klean Kanteen, Qwetch, and Saywhatbottles.

Did you know?

  • The Netherlands discards seven billion pieces of disposable cups and food packaging every year.

  • Paper cups generally have a plastic lining and can’t be recycled.

Plastic cap collection - Hard plastic caps are being collected to support the D-Dog Foundation of the Netherlands to train future service dogs. All hard plastic screw caps, e.g., from soft drinks, milk, or juice, but also from toothpaste, shampoo, detergent, chocolate spread, etc. are welcome. They are sold to a processor, who grinds the caps and lids into granules, which serve as a raw material for new plastic products.

Plastic caps can be dropped off in the ECC cafeteria, the elementary school atrium, and the IT Office.
