Battle of the Coffee Cups
Half of the plastic produced globally goes into products that are used only once, which creates a staggering amount of waste. This is one reason why we
don't use disposable cups at home. Why then, do we have a throwaway culture elsewhere? With 500 billion disposable cups produced every year, inconvenience
is no longer an acceptable reason. Reuse or refrain.
Disposable Cup Versus the Keep Cup and other reusables
|Promotes a throwaway culture of one-time use
||Promotes larger movement of reuse and sustainability
|Part of the problem
||Part of the solution
|Compostable and biodegradable paper cups cannot be put into household compost
||No composting required, just keeps on keeping on.
|1 million disposable cups end up in landfill every minute
||3.5 billion disposable cups diverted from landfill by KeepCup and other reusable cup users
|There is the same amount of plastic in 20 disposable cups as one small KeepCup
||Yes this is plastic but reusable!
|Minutes in your hand, up to 50 years in landfill.
||Use KeepCup for 3 years plus. Then recycle.
|Many disposable cups cannot be recycled (most disposable cups are lined with polyethylene, contaminating the recycling stream).
||Every KeepCup can be recycled
|Polystyrene Polyethylene Paper
||Polyproplyene Silicon LDPE or Glass
Disposable cups present a global environmental issue, but the solution is relatively simple. In just a few years KeepCup users alone have diverted 3.5
billion cups from landfill and we're only just getting started.
As a bonus your reusable cup is much more stylish, coming in a range, colours and ranges…..we love the glass ones. Come on we know you want to!
