    People have donated old dinnerware sets to our church throughout my time there. They use them for pancake breakfasts, fish fries, and other charitable benefits. I know several churches in my area that do the same thing.

    Simply donating the lids to a homeless shelter or charity while well intentioned does very little to offset the environmental impacts. The church would still be purchasing biodegradable lids. Biodegradable lids still have to have raw materials sourced, manufactured, packaged and shipped. The only difference is where the product ends up at the end of its useful life cycle. Why not forgo lids all together- this would encourage folks to take pause and stay a while to drink the coffee and talk with fellow parishioners and build fellowship- I’d say this is a win-win. Or ask folks to bring a mug from home if they’d like some coffee - that would save the church from having to wash re-usable mugs and folks could show off a unique mug they have- a great conversation starter as well!

    Pleeeeeeease don’t just recycle them unused!!!! Who cares if you have too many lids? Eventually the used cups will catch up to the lids as long as you don’t buy more!!! Recycling the lids without even having bothered to use them at all will cause so much MORE harm to the environment!!!
