Plastic cups banned, paper cups not so…..’cuppy’
The use of plastic cups to serve drinks have been banned by the UAE health ministry due to obvious health reasons.
Any cafe or office still using plastic cups is to be reported to the ministry.
Our office has also discarded all its inventory of plastic cups and replaced them with ‘thermocole’ paper cups.
There is however, one issue here: these paper cups are not a good idea for hot drinks.
Today morning, as I returned to my seat with the morning coffee in the new cup, it ‘melted’ under the hot beverage, ruining my clothes.
Important note: make sure that you use atleast 2 of those cups when using for hot beverages.
