Styrofoam is so 20th Century. United finally got the memo and today has introduced new “eco-friendly” coffee cups that will soon be appearing onboard your next United flight and in United Clubs worldwide.
A token move, but still laudable that United is trying to be a better steward of the environment.
I hate the feel of styrofoam on my lips, but I am not sure that plastic will be much better–far better to use the real coffee mugs available in most United Clubs and to fly in first class!
United has even produced a video about the new cups.
