According to surveys, Americans dispose of tonnes of disposable waste each year. In fact, if we were to line this waste along the equator, it could circle it more than 300 times. However, the main problem with these utensils is that they are very inexpensive and handy. Furthermore, our modern culture that promotes take away food and use and throw utensils is also to be blamed for this. Amongst plastic waste too, the cups stand out because of their sheer number and the fact that we usually drink more times than we eat. Therefore, now we are faced with a rising need to recycle disposable plastic cups.
