The Crazy Afterlife of Chick-fil-A Styrofoam Cups
You won't believe the transformation.
Next time you get a drink in a Styrofoam cup at Chick-fil-A, you may have a newfound appreciation for its life after The Chick.
As Wide Open Country recently reported, the company is transparent about what becomes of their red-and-white cups after you sip your beverage. "Customers tell us that they love our foam cups. They keep the drinks cold for hours. But instead of just throwing all thse cups into the landfill, Chick-fil-A began a journey to understand how we could make these cups into something more useful," explains Sarah Blackmon, Chick-fil-A's Manager, Enterprise Social Responsibility in a USA TV Network segment.
In the video, viewers are taken into the facility to see how they transform the Styrofoam cups into upcycled products, like benches made from recycled foam and plastic. Watch the fascinating process below.
