BILLIONS of single-use cups from live events end up in landfills and our environment each year…. …We can’t recycle our way out of this!
At last, clear scientific consensus supporting reusable polypropylene (PPL) cups as the most sustainable option, and single-use aluminum cups as the worst option for the environment by far. See full study from Upstream here
Single-use aluminum cups use 47% more energy over their life-cycle and create 86% more carbon dioxide, making it the least sustainable of all the materials analyzed.
Venues and event companies should begin the process of shifting away from ALL single-use cups, not just single-use plastic.
