This German startup offers a simpler way to recycle your coffee cup

About 16 billion paper cups are used every day for coffee consumption. In small towns in England, and in the countries like New Zealand and Germany, a deposit-based reusable cup system is being used to create less waste. Under this program consumers pay a small fee to use a reusable cap and get their cashback once they return it. One such program in Germany called "RECUP" estimates its saved 43,000 trees every year.
