Last year, 25 billion paper cups were thrown away in the United States alone.
Manufacturing a single paper cup requires 43 grams of wood, 4.1 grams of petroleum, 1.8 grams of other chemicals, and puts ¼ pound of CO2 into the atmosphere.
Thus, saving a single paper cup each day adds up to some impressive environmental benefits and savings over the years! There are tons of great options available for reusable coffee cups, water bottles, and tumblers for cold drinks.
Check out the infographic below for details on how you can make a difference! And let us know (in the comments section below) which reusable cups are your favorites.
