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.
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.
In this enlightened era, there really is no excuse for single-use.
