"Reuse...better than recycling!"
Greater DC Cup Share, LLC is a green initiative service providing reusable cups to the metro DC establishments that currently use disposable cups. The goal is to provide a complete and ubiquitous cup reuse system that is almost transparent to the user and establishments and that will eliminate millions of disposable cups from the DC landfills.
Parallel replacement to the current disposable cups in use.
- The establishments will sell the stainless steel cups to the customer.
- After the cup share cup is purchased the user will receive a discount at any participating store at time of drink purchase.

Over 50% of Americans over 18 years of age drink coffee every day. This represents over 150 million daily drinkers.
Americans throw away about 25 billion Styrofoam coffee cups every year, and 2.5 million plastic beverage bottles every hour. Most of these materials do not biodegrade. The plastic resin applied over most paper cups makes them nearly impossible to biodegrade. Styrofoam never degrades completely.
