Why choose eco-coffee cups over plastic cups
Most plastic used in the world today is for single-use items and is sent to landfill, which takes years to degrade. In three decades, it has been estimated that over 3 trillion of them have ended up in landfill. General consumer waste has increased from 40 kg per person to over 560 kg per year, having a detrimental effect on our planet.
The average lifespan of a single-use cup is less than 10 minutes. An eco-coffee cup, on the other hand, is with you for life. Before choosing the right solution it is important to consider the following factors, including how the use of product impacts the environment, health, emissions during transportation, or in disposal and the cost of recycling.
