Which is greener?

I’ve been wondering lately, which is greener – to use a paper cup for beverages or to use a reusable ceramic mug? I know conventional environmental thinking is to use the ceramic mug since it’s not cutting down trees and being dumped in a landfill (at least not after the first use). But, since water is such a precious resource then is it worse to throw a bio-degradable cup away, or to use the 8oz of water to clean the mug? Which is more valuable in the end?

Just a thought.
