Red solo cup you lift me up, but you often end up in the garbage, what gives! Parties are fun, and when you’re a young person at university it seems like these red instruments of alcohol containment are ubiquitous at any event. I seem to be throwing these red cups into the recycling a lot. Instead of buying red plastic cups for our next social event or utilising them at events I attend, I aim to instead challenge myself and my friends to bring and use their own reusable cups rather utilise plastic alternatives. With an estimated 5 trillion plastic particulates in our oceans, we need to stop using disposable items! The usage of xenobiotic materials found in these red cups are poisoning some of the most fragile biomes on this earth.
