As shown above, the effort required on Sunday mornings to use either disposable or glass cups is about equal.  I.e. for every chore required when using disposable cups, there is an equivalent chore required for washable ones.   However, disposable cups require chores at other times for which equivalent washable cup chores do not exist.  Those chores (written in red) represent the extra effort that disposable cups require as compared to what's required today with washables.

Using washable cups also saves money!  See our cost comparison for details.
