    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!!!

    Use them for so many things. Growing small plants in the house they are great as saucers. Catches all the water and does not destroy my shelves. Like large plastic ones that come with whipped cream tubs.

      Coffee cup lids have little holes in them to drink the coffee through and also are usually not level. Disposable plastic coffee cup lids wouldn’t work for this.
