Bamboo cups are a new generation of reusable takeaway cup and can be used for hot and cold drinks. They are made from the world’s fastest growing, most sustainable crop which is naturally organic, bamboo fibre and non-GMO corn starch. They are light, practical and resealable for easy storage in bags.

Bamboo Cup feels like light cardboard. And because bamboo fibre is naturally sterile, it is lovely to drink from and doesn’t alter the taste of the drink. It has a fully resealable ‘drip-proof’ lid, making it perfect for on the go. The cup lasts for years if treated nicely. The Cup is dishwasher safe.  We do recommend hand washing.

Bamboo cup is biodegradable. When it has reached the end of its life, it can be simply crushed, soaked in boiling water and buried with organic compost. The food grade silicone lid and sleeve can be recycled.

 Additional Information

The average lifespan of a single-use cup is 13 minutes – and due to their plastic content less than 1% get recycled. According to the survey in Apr 18, 2018 , each year over 500 million single use coffee cups are used and thrown away around the globe. Some coffee companies actively promote on their packaging that their cups can be recycled. Though they are made largely of paper, disposable coffee cups are lined with plastic polyethylene, which is tightly bonded to the paper making the cups waterproof and therefore able to contain liquid. In addition, the difficulty of recycling coffee cups is increased by the fact they are contaminated with drink. This means cups cannot be recycled at standard recycling plants. About 200 liters of water are used in the production of one disposable coffee cup and the production of one single use coffee cup, sends about 0,11 kg of CO2 to the atmosphere.

 Plastic takes hundreds of years to break down into tiny microplastic which is ingested by animals and humans. Paper cups are made from paper pulp, from a fallen tree. It’s used for the length of time it takes to drink the coffee. Disposable coffee cups have major impact on the environment.Half of the plastic produced globally goes into products that are used only once, which creates a staggering amount of waste.. Reuse or refrain.
