"I'm not a paper cup" twin better than the original The double walled, porcelain cup comes complete with a removable silicone lid, so you can have your regular morning coffee without adding to the landfill problem. this version has a polished exterior which makes it better for cleaning. Zero packaging allows it to be more eco friendly. In the USA alone there are an estimated 25 billion 'disposable' coffee cups thrown away each year. The fact that, due to health regulations, the vast majority (90%+) of the paper in these cups is brand new virgin paper does not help matters. You might think, then, that the cups themselves could be recycled, right? Wrong! During manufacturing the cups are laminated with a plastic resin (polyethylene) in order to insulate and seal the cups. This prevents recycling, and ensures that every single laminated paper cup ends up in landfill and begins to decompose. As it does, it releases methane, a greenhouse gas with 23 times the heat trapping power of carbon dioxide. So, do your bit. Grab yourself a new mug, and make a stand against wasteful paper cups.
