Which Coffee Cup is most Eco-Friendly? [Infographic]

Many people need that morning cup of coffee to get through the day. However, depending on their style of coffee cup, their daily jolt could be killing the planet.

Disposable cups made from materials such as paper, Styrofoam and plastic are cheap and convenient, but their impact on the environment can be costly. In fact, paper cups are produced by cutting down 20 million trees, and Styrofoam cups sit in landfills for 500 years before breaking down.

Reusable cups made from glass, porcelain, ceramic or earthenware are better as they don’t impact the flavor and are eco-friendly. Which one you select depends on how much you have to drink.

That can be seen in the case of one of the most eco-friendly parts of sharing economy – the bike-sharing. Although the most eco-friendly places in the world (Denmark, Germany, Netherlands) have more than 70% cyclist out of the entire population, many countries still think that bike sharing services are important. Maybe the main reason for this lies in the fact that we are not sure about the size of the impact that bike sharing has on a climate change. Well, let’s take a look what every turn of the pedal brings.
