Red Solo Cup

We all know plastic is not decomposable. Toby Keith quite possibly doesn’t. His song “Red Solo Cup” is very catchy though. Hopefully it will not increase the one-time use plastic cups sales. Solo should consider returning to paper cups, color them red and call it a day. Then they would be recylable and/or compostable.

Now, Red Solo Cup Is The Best Receptical For Barbecues, Tailgates, Fairs, And Festivals And You, Sir, Do Not Have A Pair Of Testicles If You Prefer Drinkin’ From Glass
Hey, Red Solo Cup Is Cheap And Disposable And In Fourteen Years, They Are Decomposable And Unlike My Home, They Are Not Foreclosable Freddy Mac, Can Kiss My Ass
Red Solo Cup I Fill You Up Let’s Have A Party Let’s Have A Party
I Love You, Red Solo Cup I Lift You Up Proceed To Party Proceed To Party
Now, I Really Love How You’re Easy To Stack But I Really Hate How You’re Easy To Crack ‘Cause When Beer Runs Down The Front Of My Back Well, That, My Friends, Is Quite Yucky
But I Have To Admit That The Ladies Get Smitten Admirin’ At How Sharply My First Name Is Written On You With A Sharpie When I Get To Hittin’ On Them To Help Me Get Lucky
Red Solo Cup I Fill You Up Let’s Have A Party Let’s Have A Party
I Love You, Red Solo Cup I Lift You Up Proceed To Party Proceed To Party
Now, I’ve Seen You In Blue And I’ve Seen You In Yellow But Only You, Red, Will Do For This Fellow ‘Cause You Are The Abbot To My Costello And You Are The Fruit To My Loom
Red Solo Cup, You’re More Than Just Plastic You’re More Than Amazing, You’re More Than Fantastic And Believe Me That I Am Not The Least Bit Sarcastic When I Look At You And Say
Red Solo Cup, You’re Not Just A Cup (No! No! No! God, No! ) You’re My-you’re My (Friend?) Friend (Friend X3; Life-long) Thank You For Being My Friend

The argument that they are recyclable is laughable too. These are made to throw away. Unless there is someone truly committed to going through the garbage at these barbeques and parties these are going straight to the landfill.

I have some great options. How about Mason jars? They are still pretty hillbilly and you can reuse them over n’ over again.

How about Mason jars at a wedding?Mason jars at a barbeque?Then after the party you can load them up in the dishwasher or…I couldn’t help myself! The caption reads “Most husbands help with dishes”. The aprons pretty awesome too.

What do you like to drink out of at a party?


“Above all, we should question the consumer ethic, which uses up non-renewable resources, creates inequality and injustice, generates pollution, destroys other species and upsets the balance of nature. The consumer ethic not only defiles the environment by creating undesirable change in the biosphere but also corrupts the mind and body by defining pleasure in terms of ownership and absorption. Waste itself is a human concept; everything in nature is eventually used. If human beings carry on in their present ways, they will one day be recycled along with the dinosaurs.”

Peter Marshall


About stephanieough

Wife, mom, concerned citizen of the earth. Striving towards intentional living rather than blindly following. Former Education Specialist for a corporation, I have now taken a step back to spend time with my family and work closer to home. Hoping to reduce our waste through refusing, reducing and reusing so that we will not have to recycle as much. Also, I love to explore zero-waste fast food and take pictures of my sucesses. I'm a fan of British comedies like Red Dwarf and Black Adder, Kevin Smith and his movies, Asian food, documentaries, biographies and going to Las Vegas on vacation. If someone told me I could only listen to the Beatles for the rest of my life I would die happy.

  1. I LOVE that song! One of my faves, seriously… but not the Glee version. 🙂 I have a serious love affair with Mason jars too, they are so handy I use a dozen to create a pantry in my little kitchen. And I have four Mason jars with handles that I bought when I was thirteen to use in my kitchen when I moved out. Seems my tastes haven’t changed much in 20 years!
