WHY IT MATTERS
In the U.S., we throw away more than 50 billion coffee cups every year. These are coated with plastic to laminate the inside and use plastic lids. How we calculate your emissions: 0.6kg CO2 per cup, 50 billion cups per year in the USA, i.e. 150 cups per person per year in the US, approx. 100kg CO2 emissions per year and person (see earthday.org for further calculations).
We work with Sustainable Harvest International on various reforestation projects. Sustainable Harvest International is an environmental nonprofit with over 25 years of experience partnering with smallholder farmers to adopt regenerative practices that nourish people and the planet.
