Very few people know it, but last year marked a somewhat dubious 30th anniversary: the birth of the modern single-use “paper” cup. In three short decades, we estimate that over 3 trillion of them have ended up in landfill. Oh, in case you’re wondering, that’s 3,000,000,000,000.
The average lifespan of a single-use cup is less than 10 minutes – and due to their plastic content less than 1% will be recycled.
So, in what could only be described as the understatement of the century, in 2014 we felt there was an appetite for change!
That’s why we created Ecoffee Cup.
Made with natural fibre, corn starch and resin, it’s BPA, BPS and phthalate-free. The lid and sleeve are made with matte, food-grade silicone which is latex-free and designed especially for hot liquids. It has a re-sealable ‘no-drip’ lid, making it perfect to take with you everywhere you go. The whole product (cup, lid and sleeve) is dishwasher safe and should last for years if treated nicely.
Available in a wide range of contemporary patterns; bright, vibrant colours or classic prints, Ecoffee Cup is light, bright and beautiful to drink from, with no plastic after-taste.
In this enlightened era, it’s never been easier to Choose to Re-use.
