Why do Global QSR’s use different Plastic Resins for different Single-Service Items?

Studying human nature typically leads to one blindingly obvious conclusion:

It is near-impossible to change the nature/actions of billions of people en masse, even with threats of dire warnings such as global warming or extra taxes!

To ask consumers to “put paper waste here” and “”put plastic waste there” is one thing!

To ask consumers to “put paper cup here” but “first, separate off plastic lid and put there”, or “remove your straw/coffee stirrer from a cup before disposal” is quite another!
