why it matters

THE 

THROWAWAY CULTURE

It’s estimated that 50 billion coffee cups are thrown away in the USA every year & take up to 1000 years to decompose

THE

PAPER CUP

Even paper cups are not recyclable because of the plastic lining inside the cup

THE

LACK OF AWARENESS

Over 30% of people don’t realize that you can bring your own cup to most coffee stores

THE

SAVINGS

Cafes save money on purchasing cups,  the city saves money on taxpayers dollars spent to collect waste, and YOU save money

THE

RECYCLING

MYTH

Only 1 in 400 coffee cups actually end up recycled even if put in the recycling bin

THE

FAILING ALTERNATIVES

Plant-based “compostable” plastic alternatives are not working (hint: they are only compostable in perfect conditions) 

THE

MATERIALS

Stainless steel is one of the only material that is 100% recyclable and never degrades over its lifecycle

SOLUTION
