New Zealanders use 295 million single use coffee cups each year. All of these end up in landfill or the environment - even if they say recyclable or compostable on them due to a lack of facilities that accept the materials.
That is... until now! These recycled single-use coffee cup lid earrings bring you a unique conversation starter. Wear these simple earrings, while using your reusable coffee cup and spread the word about how easy it is to make your caffeine hit better for the planet.
Made from black and white lids, with colour added using spirals of 3D printer waste (PLA).

- 'Compostable' plant based plastics pose issues for commercial facilities because there are no regulations around what constitutes a plant based plastic and they are often made of materials that provide no nutrients to the final compost products.
- Coffee cup lids are not easily recyclable due to their complex composition and contamination with beverage residue.
- Due to their small size and mixed material composition, coffee cup lids pose challenges for recycling facilities and generally head to landfill throughout New Zealand.
