Foam cups can be recycled also. The problem is, we don't. Most times they
just go to the trash and, hopefully, to a trash to energy plant where they
become fuel for a powerplant. Disposables are borderline compared to the
energy of handling and washing a ceramic or glass cup. My choice though, is
a real ceramic mug.
