We have been recycling takeaway coffee cups since 1995 and have not realised that the world is not able to recycle these items until only recently.


to reuse or make (a substance) available for reuse for biological activities through natural processes of biochemical degradation or modification  Merriam Webster dictionary.

 to process (something, such as liquid body waste, glass, or cans) in order to regain material for human use.  Merriam Webster dictionary


Just as the Howard-Higgins system or any proper composting system can recycle poisonous plants such as fox gloves etc., and make them into optimum fertiliser so we do with coffee cups. We turn them all into fertiliser that grows super nutritious organic food.

The UK Government have also released a video stating that coffee cups are non recyclable and will remain undecomposed for 1,000 years? The Good Gardeners have been recycling coffee cups since 1995 and making them into organic fertiliser that conserves moisture and carbon in 90 days; something Australia really needs. HH-2 reduces polyethelene to its organic compounds.
