Did you know... even though silver lined tetra packs have a ♻️ on them... they are actually not recycled here in Perth 😱
This packaging consists of several layers of paper board, plastic and aluminium all bonded together with adhesives.
The advantages of this type of packaging is that nutrients and freshness are locked tightly into the carton, sterilised and protected from light - meaning they don’t have to be refrigerated before opening.
The problem with this packaging is that even though the individual layers of materials “could” technically be recycled (which I think must be how the manufacturers get away with putting the ♻️ on the package)... the cost, technology, and energy required to do so far exceeds the value of the recycled end product.
This means that ALL... yes ALL tetra packs including long life milks and milk alternatives, juices, kids size juices, cooking stock - and any other product packaged in silver lined tetra packs will indeed go to landfill in Perth.
If you research further you might find info like: Most councils in Australia collect for recycling. If your council accepts these silver lined tetra packs for recycling, please ask the question... where do they go and how are they recycled? I am not aware of any facility in Australia with the capacity or machinery required to soak the tetra packs, and extract each individual recyclable component for future use. Please do let me know if you find one though.
Are there alternatives? Yes.
✅Look for paperboard alternatives like the 1L milk cartons since these may actually be recycled.
✅DIY oat milk.
✅Check out @ulu_hye for some awesome nut and hemp alternatives.
✅ Try @sunnydaledairy for local WA milk in glass bottles which can be returned for re-use 👍
운좋게 다른 손님들이 안 계실때 도착해서
사진을 많이 찍을 수 있었는데
날이 흐려서인지 화질이 아쉽다.
올리지 못한 사진이 더 많을 정도.
(카메라 사고 싶어진다 엉엉)
당분 충전에 업된 기분으로 떠들고 있었는데
음악이 바뀔때 보니 우리 목소리가 꽤 컸다.
스피커 바로 앞에 있어서 몰랐나 보다.
티라미수와 라떼, 음악을 즐길 수 있는,
혼자 노트북을 들고 가고 싶은 곳이었다.
자전거 꺼내서 또 놀러가야겠다.
