A Vancouver association, Binners' Project, believes they have found the solution to prevent coffee cups from ending up in the trash: add a deposit so that the cups go for recycling.
“Vancouverites throw away 2.6 million cardboard coffee containers per week, according to a recent City report. The creators of the Binners' Project believe they have found the solution to slow the explosion of this waste: add a deposit so that the cups go for recycling and not in the trash. "
At the same time, the project makes it possible to tackle another problem, namely homelessness.
Through the next activities, students will learn about the Binners' Project as well as one of the most progressive cities in the country, Vancouver.
