how is fette sustainable?
fette is made from #1 PET plastic which is 100% recyclable and accepted at all recycling facilities.
traditional party cups are made out of no.6 plastic, otherwise known as polystyrene/styrofoam. this plastic is NOT accepted at most recycling facilities and can release potentially toxic breakdown products like styrene into your food or drink. in the long term, this leaching can act as a neurotoxin and possibly a carcinogen. studies report the harmful effects of styrene on red-blood cells, the liver, the kidney, and stomach. that’s unacceptable!
if we want to phase out red solo cups, and fight the toxic and wasteful elements of party culture, the science is clear! in terms of protecting both the climate and your health, #1 plastic is the way to go– with no known health issues, and complete recyclability.
