Reports and life cycle assessments (LCA) analyzes shows that reusable solutions have a significantly lower CO2 footprint than the disposable solutions. An LCA screening of recycled cups vs. disposable cups from FORCE TECHNOLOGY show that when the recycling cups / reusable mugs are used more than 2.77 times, there is a climate advantage over the disposable cups.
Disposable cups and single-use plastic glasses replaced with the reusable cups or glasses reduces the environmental impact by 88,9%.
Paper cups used for coffee to-go have a plastic coating to ensure they are waterproof. This makes them almost impossible to recycle, and means they only degrade very slowly. When they do so, they tend to break into smaller pieces (microplastics), which contaminate the natural environment.
Disposable paper cups and single-use plastic glasses - even if they are bio-based or biodegradable - cannot be recycled. They normally come to incinerators and are burned.
Reduce the use of plastic by removing and eliminate disposable products, disposable glasses, and single-use cups. At glassFORever, we focus on reusing the plastic instead of letting nature trying to break it down.
