Every year Gong Cha produces a massive amount of plastic waste, don't get us wrong we love our bubble tea, however, the plastic waste such as straws, lids, cups and plastic bags are all contributing to the issue of pollution as most of these are not being recycled. In fact, half of the 300 million tons of plastic produced each year is used only once. Use of plastic materials by such a popular brand, is shocking as some people buy a cup of bubble tea everyday of the week, that’s 31 cups and 31 straws per month!

We urge Gong Cha to replace their plastic materials with more environmentally friendly materials, such as biodegradable cups, straws, lids and bags. Gong Cha is currently trying to reduce their waste by having a bring-your-own-cup, however, this is NOT enough. (and let's be honest, most of the time people can't be bothered or don't remember to BYO cup so it's best to stop it at the source)

We are a group of students who are both mass bubble tea consumers and people who deeply care for the environment. We see how much plastic the Gong Cha produce stores and we want to make Gong Cha aware of how damaging their cups and plastic straws are to the environment and attempt to make a change to their company policy.
