THANKYOU FOR TAKING THE SURVEY!!!
From the UCSC Sustainability Office, Zero Waste Team
Did you know that...?
- UCSC has trashed 1,500,000+ Cups and Lids in 1.5 years.
- Paper cups are not recyclable because they contain a plastic waxy coating inside.
- Although coffee lids are plastic, they are made of polystyrene and are NOT recyclable either.
- You can avoid .25lbs of CO2 emissions by avoiding 1 paper cup.
- From 2010-2012 UCSC spent $72,239.82 on Cups, Lids, & Sleeves.
