Recyclable cup wraps and sleeves eliminate double cupping
Tea drinkers know that holding a paper take-out cup filled with hot tea is very uncomfortable if not impossible. Staff, serving at coffee and tea shops, double cup to protect customers’ hands. Sometimes a cardboard wrap is slipped on the two cups. If you use an insulated recyclable cup sleeve to protect your hands, you add only one paper cup to the planet’s garbage pile instead of two cups and a cardboard wrap.
If your favorite tea or coffee shop allows you to use your own mug, you have no paper cups to add to the garbage pile.
Happy Earth Day – April 22!
