The used cups are collected each week and taken to a facility where they are cleaned, chopped into tiny bits, and then extruded. The pieces are coal-bonded into logs. Those logs are then taken to a plastic recycling company. Using other materials and the cups, they’re assembled into park benches so that the entire community benefits. I don’t know about you, but it’s always great to see large corporations taking an extra step, which they really don’t have to, to employ better practices for the environment. It’s little things like this that add up to a better, brighter future.
