KFC SINGAPORE DOUBLES DOWN ON SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES
Paper cups manufactured out of food-grade paper will replace regular plastic cups, cutting 8.3g of plastic from a regular-sized cup and 10g from a medium-sized cup. This move can expect to see a staggering decrease in consumption of single use plastic cups by almost 500,000 units, or approximately 4.25 Metric Tonnes of plastic waste per month. A whopping sum of 51 Metric Tonnes of plastic waste can be expected to be saved in just a year.
