25 Billion Paper Cups Thrown Away?
Last year just in the United States, an unbelievable 25 billion paper cups were thrown away. If this number seems staggering, just think back to how many disposable coffee cups you saw this morning alone and how many to-go cups you saw at work after lunch. Disposable cups are a common sight in every corner of the US and sadly, they easily pile up in our landfills.
Many paper disposable cups are difficult if not impossible to recycle. The plastic coating that allows disposable cups to hold fluids is great for preventing leaks, but it also thwarts any effort to recycle the cup. Plastic cups are not much better since people typically toss them in the trash when they are done instead of recycling them properly.

We Can Do Better!
Take a stand and say goodbye to your disposable cup habit and switch to eco-friendly reusable cups and reusable water bottles. Each time you use a eco-friendly reusable drink container you prevent a disposable container from being thrown into a landfill and wreaking havoc on the environment. Every business, association or organization can take a marketing tip from the restaurants and coffee shops who emblazon their names and logos on disposable cups and instead, create a custom reusable coffee mug or water bottle from Factory Direct Promos for their business or brand.
