    The cup is made from plastics probably derived from corn or soy. It is a gimmick for the terminally dumbed down to feel good about themselves – while they are dressed in polyester, drink water that passes through plastic pipes and drive fossil fuel powered cars (that includes Tesla, Leaf etc), all while clueless about reality. The durability of vegetable based polymers is not that great. Surprised it does not say that the cup is edible too.

    As to anything derived from hemp, including CBD and this crap, would not ingest it even if offered money to do so.

    Wheat fiber mug? I wonder how much gluten it has?

    “a why to these things”: Profit.

    to “assuage the guilt” of self absorbed

    The original intent was for individuals who are allergic to dairy or no access to dairy (think soy – Asian). I being one of those people.

  7. Fad, pure and simple.

    Actually looked up the wheat-fiber mug. Best I can tell, China started using shredded wheat straw as a filler in the plastic mix to lower production costs. To sell it, they market it as “green” because you don’t need to kill trees for wood for paper. Several of the products I found pretend these aren’t plastic at all, and are therefore so much better.

    Ahh, you found a Whole foods or Sprouts.

    The hemp byproducts all boost the profitability of growing hemp once you extract the medicinal content [THC & CBD] for separate sale. Remember, hemp ropes were the norm back when natural fibers were all we had: it still has value [esp. as a quickly renewable resource for paper or power production.] I wanna see hemp TP; will it sandpaper your backside or finally have sufficient strength & cheapitude that when that !#@!@$#*% penny-pinching accountants that compel every business to buy only single-ply TP that it won’t earn them a place of their own in hell? X-D [fwiw, I’ve been a Costco “Kirkland” brand TP adherent for a few decades now, great price/performance mix…]

To the stake with the heretic!
