Zentveld’s Introduces Plastic Free Paper Cups
Posted: 21 Jan 2020
Bringing flavour and life to Byron Bay cafe scene, Zentveld’s is a roastery and plantation with a proud reputation for offering newly Australian estate coffee that promotes sustainability and ethical practices.


Coffee cups are estimated to be the second-largest contributor of waste after plastic bottles. Standard paper cups feature a thin plastic or bioplastic lining, and require specialist recycling as it is not easily recyclable. Zentveld’s continues to take steps in becoming an environmentally responsible business, and were looking for a takeaway cup to support their sustainable objectives.


Zentveld’s have now joined efforts to make a difference by taking on Castaway® plastic free paper cups and committing to diverting takeaway cups from landfill. Wanting their cups to be easily identified and recyclable, opting for Plastic Free Paper Cups was a sustainable option, with the cups able to be recycled within current waste streams.

Also – being plastic free and 100% recyclable, this range gives consumers the ability to dispose and recycle through co-mingled collection, no matter where they travel to.
