You should use the plastic cup once, but it takes nature 50 years to break it down. Large quantities of plastic end up in the sea, where it is eaten by plankton, fish, birds and marine mammals.

Global production is approaching 300 million tonnes a year, and plastic pollution in the sea is one of the fastest growing environmental challenges. This is precisely why plastic belongs to the material solutions of the past.
