Takeaway Bubble Tea like other takeaway drinks comes in a plastic disposable container with a disposable straw and like all single use products used for a few minutes, discarded, rarely get recycled and thus end up in landfill or our waterways.
The impact of all single use disposable plastic products on the environment is massive. According to Conservation Guide.org, globally we produce around 300 million tons of plastic each year, half of which is single use or disposable.
We recycle less then 9% of plastic we produce every year and majority ends up in landfill and from there about 8 million tons of plastic waste escapes into the oceans from coastal nations. That’s the equivalent of setting five garbage bags full of trash on every foot of coastline around the world.
So what is the solution we have- avoid single use disposable plastic products. Invest in good quality reusables that last as poor quality products break easily and have a short life which is not a sustainable solution for the planet.
Bubble Tea is also known as Boba tea or Pearl tea, invented in Taiwan by Taichung in 1980’s and has gained massive popularity across the world. Bubble Tea is made by combining tea with milk and fruits or fruit syrups and topped up with flavoured tapioca balls. The straw for drinking bubble tea has to be a thick/big diameter one to suck the big tapioca balls it has.
