The Life Cycle
Step 1: Collection
First, we collect from student organizations who have eagerly agreed to work closely with us to reduce their environmental impact.
Step 2: Decontamination
To make sure there are no contaminants, we clean the cups thoroughly before they enter the machine.
Step 3: Processing
The machine processes the Solo cups into a fiber.
Step 4: Fabric Production
The fiber is spun into yarn. The yarn is then woven into fabric.
To give you an idea of the momentum we’ve gained on the Johns Hopkins University campus alone, we have received over 4,500 Solo cups from the various student organizations that were eager to support our movement in just a semester.
We aim to see a day when colleges all over the US are able to participate in our Solo cup collection program.
