Coffee Cups: Re-usable Plastic, Paper, or Styrofoam?


How many cups of coffee do I have to drink out of my re-usable plastic travel mug to be more eco-friendly than using a disposable paper or styrofoam cup?


Please see 3 URLs with links to studies on the use of reusable plastic mugs versus paper or styrofoam cups from an environmental point of view. I hope this information will help you with your choice of cups.

Thank you for your question,   — Flo
