“Each year 100 billion single use cups end up as landfill.”Ecoffee Cup
With the world’s café culture at an all-time high, the demand for coffee on the go has never been greater. From long journeys on the motorway, to quick stops on the tube, you’re sure to spot more than a handful of commuters cradling a hot cup of coffee.
However the single use cups that cafes are using today are posing a problem that is hard to ignore: most coffee cups are not recyclable, so they end up in landfill.
Cafes across the UK are trying to face the issue, with household names such as Starbucks introducing their new £1 reusable, plastic coffee cups. However this type of scheme is not particularly affordable for independent coffee houses, who rely on bulk buying their coffee cups to keep costs low and competitive.
What can we do?
Consumers have been actively searching for ‘greener’, fairly traded, quality coffee for some years now. In return, cafes have been producing outstanding coffee to keep up with demand. Now it’s time for consumers to seek alternatives for the single use coffee cups. That alternative comes in the form of the Ecoffee Cup.
Using the world’s fastest growing and most sustainable crop – bamboo fibre – Ecoffee Cup gives us the chance to enjoy coffee at the same rate, with less environmental impact. Not only are they beautiful, they are also BPA and phthalate free! And the use of naturally sterile bamboo fibre ensures your coffee flavour isn’t tainted.
Ecoffee Cup boasts the claim that it can be used for a lifetime, if you treat it nicely. However, if you did want to dispose of it, the cup itself is biodegradable and the lid and sleeve are recyclable.
We are very excited to now stock Ecoffee Cup!
They’re an amazing gift for the coffee lover in your life, or as simply a treat for yourself. Grab yours now!
