Did you know that over 80 million gallons of paint are wasted every year? And that's not just bad for our wallets it's also terrible for the environment that we live in. At Touch Up Cup, we believe that this is unacceptable especially when the paint that is improperly disposed of could be instead be recycled for city projects and, in turn, reduce state and country-wide spending. With Touch Up Cup, this problem is solved by our innovative technology that stores your paint for later use for more projects and any touch-up jobs that you might not be immediately apparent. We hope that our product will help everyone to reduce our egregious yearly waste of resources that could be simply reused for future projects
If sealed correctly, latex paint can last up to 10 years and oil-based paint up to 15 years.
