Hi, my name is Will! I'm the founder of Red Cup!
The idea came to me while I was trying to shop for plastic party cups. Due to the Australian government slowly phasing out single-use plastics it's becoming increasingly difficult to find them! It made me think "why doesn't someone just make a stainless steel party cup..?"
Worldwide 500 billion single-use plastic cups are used every year! But they have a 450 year lifespan before they decompose! If you threw out a plastic cup today it would still be here in 2471!
In the space of a couple years takeaway coffee cups and plastic water bottles have seen a massive shift with many people switching to a reusable coffee cup or water bottle.
I believe we could see the same trend with single-use party cups! With no other suitable alternatives to disposable plastic cups prior to Red Cup™. Glass is too dangerous, while throwaway paper cups go soggy real quick!
Red Cup™ has a goal to "save the planet, one beer pong game at a time".
