If you drink coffee and buy something nearly everyday, you might want to get a reusable container for that, a mug, etc. Styrofoam cups takes nearly 500 years to degrade and billions are used every year in America alone. These cups are not recyclable, at least not practically, they can’t be used to make new styrofoam or other products. Use something that will either degrade more quickly or is reusable. 

Most coffee shops that you buy things from will sell reusable mugs. Buy one of those and it’ll last years instead of using a cup that’s thrown away everyday. 

A lot of shops will credit you money too! 10 cents or more if you use a reusable tumbler on that purchase!

Today I stumbled across some reusable plates, utensils, and other things that are made from bamboo and are 100% safe for your health. I’ve decided that these are an EXCELLENT replacement for anyone who uses paper plates and plastic utensils for parties or picnics often. They are rather inexpensive and light weight, as well as easy to clean. 

This is a picture of one of the plates, there are several more options on the website ( bambu-veneerware.html )

Visit if this is the case for you. Like I said, they’re rather inexpensive, so I personally think it’s worth the investment. 

The products biodegrades in 4-6 months, which makes them ideal for the environment.
