It's official, we are going paper
We have taken the initiative to reduce our carbon footprint. We have started to make the switch to better packaging.
Say goodbye to Styrofoam cups and hello to paper cups!
While we know that there is a heated debate over which one is better for the environment, we believe that paper cups are a better alternative to Styrofoam for the following reasons.
Paper cups are not toxic
They are easier to recycle and get recycled at a higher rate than Styrofoam cups
Decomposes in 20 years as opposed to 1-million plus years like Styrofoam
In water, paper cups decompose in a few days instead of 50 years
It's official we are going paper! We have also made the conscious decision to switch a 11 of the to-go bags to pa per bags rather than plastic. So now, when you place a to-go order, you should receive your to-go order in a paper bag at all of our locations! Our to-go chips are packaged in paper bags as well.
It is only our first step to lessen our carbon footprints. Stay tuned for more changes to come!
