Description

What is the cost of convenience?
For the Price of a Cup of Coffee is a short environmental documentary examining the life cycle of a paper cup and the repercussions of a society reliant on convenience. Why are less than 1% of coffeeshop patrons bringing their own cup? Why do we have so much garbage, and where does it go? What is the true cost of a disposable culture? Shot throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, including interviews with local activists, environmental experts and coffeeshop owners. This film is full of information that all consumers should know about the products that we use everyday, and the steps we need to make towards a more sustainable world.

  1. One coffee shop worker in San Francisco took her obsession about where all the “to go” cups come from (and where they all end up), and made this profound short documentary. Learn about what goes into each cup, and how many cups are loaded into landfills each day. If you don’t already drink from a reusable cup, what’s stopping you from making the switch?” – Earth Circle Cinema
