But they are doing the environment a huge disservice. Styrofoam doesn’t decompose! (Okay so it takes over a million years to break down) and it’s said that there are millions upon millions of these cups going nowhere.
I made cotton iced coffee (or tea, smoothies, whatever you like) Cozies because this issue really started making me mad and I wanted to do something about it. I’m not expecting to make a huge impact here, but it doesn’t hurt to try.
Okay that was my rant. Have a great Wednesday and please think about ditching that styrofoam cup.
