Glass, not plastic. For a healthier
 planet and a healthier you!

Why You Should Be Using a Glass Cup On-the-go:



Did you know Americans use 2.5 MILLION plastic cups and bottles every HOUR?? And
over 60 MILLION of these end up in US landfills every DAY?? This means that a staggering 22 BILLION plastic cups and bottles end up in US landfills every year!!

What about recycling you ask?? Today, Americans generate 10.5 million tons of plastic
waste a year but recycle only 1 or 2% of it. An estimated 14 BILLION pounds of trash, much of it plastic, is dumped in the world's oceans every year. This plastic garbage in the ocean kills as many as 1 million sea creatures every year!

And guess what, nearly every piece of plastic EVER made still exists today.

Plastics are not just bad with regard to trash waste. It wastes a hugely unacceptable amount of resources to produce plastic in this amount. Plastic cups and bottles are made from petroleum, a non-renewable resource, and require constant transportation that emits never-ending green house gases.

How can it get any worse?! Well it does! Plastic isn't healthy for us to use either!
All plastic cups, bottles and straws, especially those not meant for reuse, break down with repeated uses, washings, and with heat and time, releasing chemicals into your body.
Plastics made from polycarbonate resin can leach bisphenol-A (BPA), which is a strong
endocrine disrupter (this means it messes with your hormone levels). Studies suggest that
BPA may negatively affect reproductive organs, such as the breasts and prostate.

Glass is not only BPA-free, but phthalate, PVC, latex and lead free as well...get the point? NO leaching of anything into your drink!!! Acidic drinks especially are known to cause leaching of plastic components into your drink, which go into YOU. This may be just the tip of the iceberg, as there is much unknown about the effect of excessive plastic use on our bodies! We have been volunteered for one big experiment with our excessive use of unnatural plastics, the outcome of which we can only guess.

This situation is not hopeless. We all have a choice. And the choice you make directly effects your own health as well as the health of our planet.

Since our glass cups and straws don't leach ANY TOXINS into your liquid as you drink, choosing them over plastic immediately and positively increases your chances of better health. And each time you use them, one less plastic cup and straw end up in your landfill. Eventually this replaces thousands of plastic cups and straws! If just 1000 people use a reusable cup such as ours, we reduce our plastic cup and bottle consumption by 365,000 a year! That's a big difference! It's time to start now.

Join us in this simple yet significant solution to reducing waste on our planet and reducing chemicals we ingest!
