In addition to single-use plastics, Tim Hortons announced last month it is taking a leadership position on single-use paper cups and is committed to executing a substantial 10-year marketing effort to change consumer perceptions in favour of using reusable cups in quick service restaurants.
Other sustainable packaging initiatives already underway include the rollout of our new lid made from polypropylene, a material that is 100% recyclable, a new strawless lid for cold beverages, testing of paper straws and a more environmentally friendly paper cup and rolling out wooden stir sticks.
Quote from Mike Hancock, Chief Operating Officer, Tim Hortons:
"We all have a responsibility to contribute to a clean environment in Canada and Tim Hortons has already started to implement substantive initiatives that Canadians can be proud of. We will work closely with our government and industry partners to implement this elimination of single-use plastics - and will also discuss with them our other environmental initiatives including our 10-year campaign to change consumer perceptions in favour of using reusable cups for hot and cold beverages at restaurants."
