On a mission to make sustainability cool, one cup at a time.
An opportunity to make a difference.
During their time at college, Earth Cups Co-Founders, Misha and Peter, would see thousands of (red) plastic cups littered across their campus and recognized the problem that is single-use plastic waste. They did some quick digging and soon learned just how harmful and ubiquitous the cheap-looking cups are. So, in April 2021, they launched Earth Cups, 100% biodegradable and compostable cups, an eco-friendly alternative to typical single-use plastic.
Earth Cups is Founded
In late 2019, Misha and Peter came together and decided to start their journey into the world of sustainability. A year and some months later, in April 2021, they launched their popular Earth Cups, providing college students and big organizations alike with an way to Drink Sustainably.™
