Most coffee and doughnut shops have switched to paper cups in order to preserve the environment. Dunkin Donuts hasn't yet, and they sell 30 cups of coffee each second. Each of those Styrofoam cups will take thousands of years to break down. In the mean time, it gets stuck in place like the Great Pacific Garbage Patch- which is an island of trash that's larger than Texas, that just floats in the middle of the Pacific. There are other trash islands in other oceans as well.

By eliminating millions of styrofoam cups, millions more animals won't die from ingesting it, getting caught in it, or be effected by the chemicals that's used in the cups production.
