Get Rid of Black Plastic Lids at ESA

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!


ESA uses black lids for coffee and tea in the cafeteria. This is a problem because in the city of Toronto, black lids cannot be recycled, despite them being recyclable material. This is because the optical sorting technology Toronto uses at the recycling facilities cannot distinguish black plastic from the black conveyor belt it uses. By making a simple switch to any other colour (i.e. brown, white, red, etc.), we can help ESA, and the city of Toronto, become a more eco-friendly place.
