Did you know?
Every year, billions of to-go paper and plastic cups end up in landfills or worse, in the ocean, where they can take hundreds of years to decompose? According to a study by the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health*, the average American office worker uses about 500 disposable cups every year and only about 23% of those cups are recycled! Similarly, plastic cups are less likely to be recycled. Only 9% of all plastic waste produced has been recycled, and it can take up to 500 years for a plastic cup to decompose in a landfill.
